A New Semester

Welcome to the fall term! I pray that your summer was full and vibrant. As you begin your new term, I want to affirm the commitment that APU is making to your spiritual development. I also want to let you know about some changes in the SoulQuest ministry.

In order to create greater synergy of ministry to ALL students – Graduate, Professional, Undergraduate, and Non-Traditional – we have adjusted the structure but kept the same commitment to relevant and contextual ministry to all of our centers and schools. In doing that we have moved SoulQuest into a newly formed Student Life Department for all students. There will be no noticeable difference in your daily program or engagement with SoulQuest and all of its ministry features. Please continue to rely on it during your educational journey.

One small difference you will notice is that from this point onward you will be receiving the weekly devotional email from Rev. Dennis Bachman instead of me. Dennis has been part of SoulQuest for a number of years. He has a pastor’s heart and I know you will love the fresh thoughts Dennis brings each week to your life. I hope you will welcome Dennis to this new responsibility. Feel free to respond to him and the Director of SoulQuest, Rev. Rick Givens, at any time. We stand with you and pray God’s blessing for the coming year!
