The King's College


homecoming invitation 2


Dear Alumni,

Any world-changing venture is only as strong as the community around it—and the backbone of the The King’s College community is its alumni. Your prayers and support encourage faculty and staff and inspire current students. And like any family, we want to see you!

So, please join us this fall in New York City for Homecoming Weekend. On Friday, November 4, we’ll gather in the new O’Keeffe Student Union at 6pm for a Welcome Reception. The New York City campus alumni are hosting a get-together over heavy appetizers and beverages. I’ll be there, along with members of the faculty and other alumni.

On the next day, Saturday, November 5, we’ll board a yacht at 14th Street in Hoboken, New Jersey for an afternoon excursion. Over lunch—during which you’ll be seated at tables by campus and graduation year—I’ll speak about the exciting work that God is doing at King’s. We’ll honor select classes and confer awards on outstanding King’s alumni. We’ll also hear from the Alumni Association and spend time fellowshipping on the Hudson River. Register below before August 31st for early-bird pricing.

I’d love to see you during Homecoming and hear about what God’s doing in our broader King’s community. Thank you for being a part of his work, and being part of our family.

All Joy and Courage,

Gregory Alan Thornbury, PhD.
