Some of the women at the EE Graduation

     On Wednesday June 13, eleven women from The Bradenton Bridge graduated with college credit classes on Evangelism. Evangelism Explosion International is affiliated with Knox Theological Seminary in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Evangelism Explosion was founded by Dr. James Kennedy in 1970 in association with Coral Presbyterian Church. Chaplain Sharon Burke coordinates volunteers from Evangelism Explosion to come to the facility and teach a variety of faith-based college credit classes to the women at the Bradenton Bridge. The students do not have to attend Knox Theological Seminary to take the courses and receive credit. The credits can then be applied to their college of choice. Evangelism Explosion invited the whole community to the special graduation ceremony, which concluded with a time of refreshments and fellowship. The graduation was attended by 75 inmates and various staff, who all stated they “had a great time of celebration!”
