Bush retires

Rev. John Bush, executive director of Seminary Support, was honored during chapel and with a reception in Koburg Hall Dec. 2 for his retirement on Dec. 31, 2019.

Bush joined Seminary Advancement in January 2018 to be responsible for fund development strategies including the major gifts, midlevel giving and annual giving programs. He joined the Seminary team during the first year of the Generations 20/20 Campaign, which has raised more than $38 million to date toward the campaign’s $66 million goal. Bush is a 1999 CSL graduate.

Among his many wonderful attributes is his pastor’s heart. We will miss the great personal and spiritual care he has provided to coworkers across campus and to students.
