Dear Co-workers in the Vineyard of our Lord,
I arrived on campus June 1, 2015, to prepare myself to take the helm of our sacred school on July 1st. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you my journey to date.
Since my arrival, I have immersed myself in the workings of the college, read presidential transition books, and spoken with countless individuals both face-to-face and on the telephone, all of whom were eager to share their thoughts about the school. One thing became very clear in every one of these conversations: people want to know more about our school. They want to know what is happening, and what we are doing to further this institution of higher learning. This first Presidential Newsletter is my attempt to do just that.
Utilizing a variety of media, I will personally issue these informative newsletters as we begin to roll out short-, mid-, and long-term goals and projects, aimed at fulfilling our strategic plan, whose objective is to most fully realize our vision and mission. I invite you to visit our website: www.hchc.edu, as well as our Facebook page. Informative videos can also be viewed on YouTube at www.youtube.com/HCHCmedia.
New and EXCITING things are happening on this Holy Hill, and I want you to be an integral part of the evolutionary process.
We are here to serve, not to be served. We are about developing servant leaders, who realize that they are servants of a King, and even more importantly, children of a Father, who loves them and cherishes their very being, created in His own image and likeness.
Finally, I ask you to join me in both prayer and effort. You may call me at any time to discuss the daily life and future direction of the school. My direct telephone number is: 617-850-1281.
Remember that, for us, “It is all about the students.”
V. Rev. Christopher T. Metropulos, D. Min.
