The BTS Center’s history stretches back to 1814, when Bangor Theological Seminary (BTS) was founded on the Maine frontier. For almost 200 years, the seminary equipped and trained faith leaders. The BTS Center desires to help preserve the school’s remarkable legacy through the “Memory Project,” in collaboration with the Executive Committee of the BTS Alumni/ae Association. Initially, this project will provide BTS alumni/ae and friends with opportunities to audio-record their BTS-related memories and share them through an online portal. In the future, we hope to expand the project, so that it encompasses a broader array of reflections about ministry as vocation, vocational and spiritual formation, and the changing nature of ministry over time.
Do you have a story that would enlighten or entertain the BTS Community?
Perhaps you have a story about a particular professor, or how your BTS experience has helped to shape your ministry? Your stories are invaluable, and we would like to help you preserve them.
Today, collecting our narratives and sharing our voices is simpler than ever. All you need is a quiet space and a recording device—a mobile phone, tablet, or computer. Simply record yourself telling a story, then save the file and email it to The BTS Center. We will do the rest, and your story will be shared here.
