The Student Society of Inquiry and Ministry (SSIM) is dedicated to serving the needs of the seminarians at New Brunswick Theological Seminary (NBTS). SSIM is an organization that provides a caring and loving environment in which students are encouraged and nurtured to develop as spiritual leaders. The mission is to act as the student governing body and initiate means and ways of expressing religious, cultural, educational, and individual faith and to grow in our Christian understanding and practice. SSIM’s scope of activities includes: initiation of forums of inquiry, planning social activities for the seminary community, and supporting the corporate voice of students by encouraging active communication, both inside the student body and with other external student groups. SSIM seeks out opportunities for service in the surrounding community. SSIM officially represents the student body to the Administrative and Faculty Councils.
