Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Roman 12:2


Congratulations to Adam Stern ’16 (Environmental Science), recipient of a year-long Natural Lands Management Internship at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa. Longwood Garden’s internship program is highly competitive. Adam is the first Messiah College student to be chosen for an internship at this world-class public gardens and conservatory.


Messiah College Press has received notification that its Forest Stewardship Council® Chain-of-Custody Certification has been renewed for the next twelve months. The renewal was awarded after we passed an extensive audit by The Rainforest Alliance and Printers Green Resource LLC. The auditors reviewed and verified all of our FSC internal chain-of-custody procedures and documentation for accuracy and compliance. The Forest Stewardship Council is an international organization that promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. Because of its Ten Principles and fifty-six strict criteria for operating a forest and addressing the concerns of all those affected by the forest, they are widely accepted as the “Gold Standard” of forest certification programs. As an FSC certified printer, College Press can add the FSC logo and the Rainforest Alliance logo to any qualifying job to show that the piece was produced on responsibly sourced paper.
