Commencement Service was held at the First Baptist Church of Newton, MA.  Pastor Bill is one of six students in the Class of 2015 to earn the Doctor of Ministry degree.  Pastor Bill says, "The large sanctuary was packed with family, friends and the school community, with music provided by a 5-piece brass ensemble.  We sang hymns, listened to several speakers, and cheered as certificates were presented.  Each student took his turn on stage receiving the degree and academic hood.  The service was followed by an elegant reception back on campus outside on the center quad.  It was great having my family there, including Christi, Kayleigh, Bennett, my parents, sister, brother-in-law, nephew and niece."
