Westminster Seminary California
Graduate Address: Derek Buikema

Each year WSC holds a reception in honor and celebration of our graduating class. The faculty selects a handful of students who are representative of the class as a whole to speak to their peers, family, friends, faculty, and trustees at this reception. We ask these students to reflect upon their time at seminary. The addresses this year were well done and provide a terrific window into seminary life and offer a few laughs as well. This week's address is by Mdiv graduate, Derek Buikema. Derek's grandfather also happens to be Derke Bergsma, Professor Emeritus of Practical Theology. Despite the fact that Derke retired in 1997, he still teaches for us! You can find Derek's address here.
