For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
(Luke 14:28 ESV)
Finances meet everyone at every corner, and seminarians and ministers are no exception. In fact, finances are the metaphor through which the life of the follower of Christ is explained:
Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
The community of the Boston Campus examined this theme of Spiritual Formation in Finances at our Formation Seminar during the Spring 2016 OCF Day. Special guest speakers were Jacqueline Cooper and Jim Clouser.

Fall 2015 OCF Day of the Boston Campus of GCTS was held at the Media Arts Center of Roxbury Community College on Saturday, September 12.
The day started with the New Student Orientation, followed by the General Session for both the new and the returning students. The topics that were covered include:
“Prayer and the Practices of the Sacramental Life” was the theme that we pursued together as a campus on this OCF Day. Dr. Mark Harden – Dean of Boston Campus and Associate Professor of Community Development and Outreach – reflected on the theme in his Convocation message, “Embodied Sacrament,” drawing from Philippians 2:1-8. Prof. Dean Borgman led an impactful Formation Seminar session on the theme, concluding the day with the Sacrament, which he officiated.
