Students at the Barrytown College of the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) got a face-to-face meeting with Dr. Michael Balcomb and Dr. Hugh Spurgin on Thursday, March 19, and learned of some sobering realities and some good news, too.

Two Unification pastors, both working moms, are newly enrolled as students in the Doctorate in Ministry degree program at UTS, in which students meet in Barrytown for 2 weeks in August and 2 weeks in February, and do the rest of their coursework at home.

Dr. Tyler Hendricks is a man of the church, deeply involved in ministry for over 30 years as a leader and innovator. He served as President of the Unification Church in America and as a pastor in New Jersey, Manhattan and Boston.

For that purpose he authored adult-education curricula including “Building a Genesis 1:28 Family” and “Creating a Faithful Christian Marriage.” Ever concerned for the growth and vitality of the church, he wrote Family, Church, Community, Kingdom: Building a Witnessing Church for Working Families (2000).

Dr. Hendricks also has wide experience in interfaith affairs, having helped direct the first Assembly of the World’s Religions (1985) and first Religious Youth Service (1986). He is the founding editor of the respected interfaith journal, Dialogue and Alliance.
