Proposal for IBTS to Move to Amsterdam

It has just been announced that it is proposed that the International Baptist Theological Seminary (IBTS) is to move from Prague to Amsterdam.  It's not all that long since it moved to Prague from Rushlikon in Switzerland.  The logic makes sense, and we trust God's guiding in the decision making, but, if approved, there will pain and loss for many who have lived and worked there, including many Czech nationals who have been employed as domestic staff, and those who have been part of the little church based there.

There is a nice circularity, I think, in the proposed move to Amsterdam, to birthplace of the Baptist 'cause' but there will be implications for the many eastern European students who have found an affordable, and culturally copable, home in Prague.  If praying be your thing, then please hold the IBTS 'family' in your prayers.
