About the President's Global Seminar -- China 2020

For decades, Union Presbyterian Seminary (UPSem) has been a leader in providing transformative travel seminars for students, alumni, and seminary friends to Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and Europe.  Now, it is your turn to participate. The President’s Global Seminar was established to provide opportunities for seminary friends to expand cultural horizons through international encounter.  We begin with an educational excursion to China.  We will see the country, meet the people, engage the history, and experience the intersection between the Church of Jesus Christ and the culture of contemporary China.  Come journey with us.  UPSem’s international classroom has set aside a seat just for you.


This unique travel seminar is being led by Dr. Brian Blount, President and Professor of New Testament at Union Presbyterian Seminary, his wife, Sharon Blount, as well as Dr. Eleanor (Bunny) Alexander and Dr. Lewis Galloway. To see their full bios, click the Leaders tab on the top toolbar.
