SHAWNEE, Kan. -- Central Seminary has announced a new partnership with Sharon and Dan Buttry related to their work in peace and non-violence.
Peace and non-violence are not new areas of interest for Central, but, by working more collaboratively with the Buttrys, Central hopes to enhance the ongoing efforts in these areas the intention of developing an even closer relationship with the Buttrys’ work.
Central recognized the contributions of Dan Buttry as a Global Consultant with American Baptist International Ministries in 2009 when the Central Board of Trustees awarded him the Doctor of Divinity in recognition of his work in peace and non-violence.
Dan launched a website, danbuttry.com, focused on peace and non-violence in the Fall of 2017. This website was created to expand the reach of the resources he and Sharon have been developing. The desire of the collaboration with Central will provide even more educational resources and enhance various training opportunities.
Central President Molly Marshall said, “Central honors the Gospel work of the Buttrys. We are thankful for their witness and are grateful for the opportunity for further collaboration in the future.”
The details and exact scope of this new phase of the Buttrys’ work have not been finalized. Central intends to announce the full plans for this collaboration in Spring 2018.
