For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

Corinthians 13:12


We are delighted to announce that Greg Lowe has accepted our invitation to serve as executive director of the newly formed Messiah Business Institute (MBI) to be housed on the Grantham campus. MBI is a consortium of family and closely-held businesses in Central Pennsylvania that seeks to build and support a thriving business community within our region. MBI will offer its members a series of workshops each year provided by regional and national experts, a breakfast speaker series and peer group roundtable discussions. MBI is funded by corporate sponsors and membership fees and will be housed in the advancement division of the College.

Greg Lowe is a recently retired partner of McKonly & Asbury, an accounting firm in Mechanicsburg. His professional experience also includes serving as president of the solutions division of ADT Data Systems/IntelliMark/Technisource; founding and owning a consulting firm focused on small to mid-sized businesses; and serving as district manager for Nestle Foods. He co-owns Classical Academic Press, a publishing company in Camp Hill, where he has six Messiah alumni on staff. He has hired more than 60 graduates during his career.

We look forward to many opportunities for Messiah students to interact with local business leaders—leading to new internships and jobs for our students and alumni.

Barry G. Goodling, vice president for advancement

Dogs on campus

Messiah is a beautiful, open campus with lots of green space that provides a wonderful area for dog owners to walk their dogs. However, there are rules pertaining to having a dog on campus.

  1. All dogs MUST be leashed at all times; they are not permitted to run at large at any time.
  2. Dogs are NOT permitted in any campus building.
  3. Dogs are permitted on the Cumberland County side ONLY of the Yellow Breeches. This is the side where all the academic buildings are located.
  4. DOGS ARE NOT PERMITTED ON THE STARRY FIELD SIDE AT ANY TIME; this includes being on any of the athletic fields and in the parking lot areas, including Treona.
  5. All handlers are to clean up after their dogs at all times.

Exemption:  If the dog is a service dog or an emotional support animal, the above rules in reference to location areas do not apply.

As a reminder, Monaghan Township has a township ordinance related to dogs running at large on property not belonging to the owner/handler. The Department of Safety will be monitoring Starry Field and if dogs and handlers are found, you will be asked to leave the Starry Field area.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Department of Safety at 717-691-6005. Thank you for helping us keep our grounds and athletic fields looking beautiful.

Mindful marketing tips

Did you know the Office of Marketing and Communications creates the site marketing marquees you see in the lobbies of the buildings? These marquees help tell the story of our students, faculty, alumni and programs to prospective students touring campus. To initiate the design of a new lobby marquee, please begin by filling out the form at Our project coordinator, Karen Garlinger, will then set up a short meeting to discuss your project goals with the design team. If you’d like updated or new marquees in your building lobby before students are back in the fall, now is the time to schedule production!
