The General Theological Seminary is a living, breathing community comprised of faculty, staff, alumni/ae, current students, and you, our friends. Friends of the General Theological Seminary give of their time and talent to us in a variety of ways. Some serve as members of our Board of Trustees and various committees or who partner with us, acting as a liason between their business, parish or community group. Such a diverse community contains many talents including those who may offer a course for professional development to our students and alumni/ae, or speak at a Paddock lecture.


There are many ways to get involved. If you have a particular interest in our library, you may consider joining the Friends of St. Mark's Library. Here you will contribute your thoughts and ideas on maintaining the wonderful library that is a gift not only to our students, but to the surrounding community. Perhaps you have a "green thumb". Every day visitors and seminarians alike are refreshed by the beauty of our gardens. The Chelsea Square Committee members help to plan and maintain these wonderful gardens, and could use you!

If you are interested in any of  these possibilies or have additional ideas, please contact Bruce Parker, Senior Vice President of External Relations via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 212-243-5150 ext. 285.
