PCM 25th Anniversary Celebration Banquet was a great success
As the longest-running ethnic-specific program under ATS schools, the Pastoral and Chinese Ministry Program (PCM) celebrated its 25th Anniversary on May 5, Sunday, 2013 with 500 donors, alumni, and guests in attendance. We were honored to have Dr. Daniel Aleshire, the Executive Director of ATS as the keynote speaker.
We kicked off the day’s celebration with a “Homecoming” for the 150 plus PCM alumni at the Ballyconnor Campus (with a guided tour to the Bayview new campus) at 4:00 p.m. , followed by an anniversary banquet at the Century Plaza Restaurant at 6:30 p.m.
