RIALTO, Calif. (BP) -- Jeff Iorg, president of Gateway Seminary, challenged its 73 graduates during winter commencement to "take the Gospel to everyday people who are struggling with life."
The seminary granted degrees and certificates to students from 17 states and four countries during ceremonies at Sunrise Church in Rialto, Calif.
Iorg told the graduates that if Gateway had shaped them to make the Gospel real to those who are struggling in life every day, then the seminary had succeeded in its mission.
"The Gospel is good news, and it's supposed to produce joy," he said. "The Gospel when preached properly will first bring conviction but inevitably bring joy.
"If you share something that only brings condemnation and distress, then you have not shared the whole Gospel," he said. "I challenge you to share the Gospel as good news because you're sharing the redemptive power of Jesus Christ." Read More
