Talbot Support Ministries (TSM)

TSM is a service-oriented ministry directed toward recent Talbot alumni and their spouses who are primarily focused on pastoral or missions careers. This program, led by Director Dr. Mick Boersma and his wife, is distinguished by commitment to the following distinctives:


Established with incoming students, continued through seminary studies and the first five to seven years of professional ministry.


The program director and his wife have extensive experience in ministry and work to keep current onchanges and issues affecting Talbot graduates.


An environment is provided in which alumni are assured of confidentiality and freedom to share their lives openly.


TSM initiates and maintains contact with alumni through newsletters, personal notes, phone calls, e-mail and on-site visits when possible.


TSM seeks to provide helpful resources such as networking with other graduates, contact with placement opportunities and professional and personal counsel.
