Pull Out All the Stops

This campaign ends on September 30 at 12:00AM EDT

A pipe organ breathes life into worship.  Union Presbyterian Seminary’s Watts Chapel pipe organ, built in 1879, fails to do this.  It was donated to Union in 1961 and for at least 10 years has become unreliable and struggles to find the strength to lead the seminary’s congregational singing. It neither has enough pedals nor musical color to be used in worship.


We need your help to fund the purchase of a new pipe organ.  The primary objective is to inspire our students with a modern, well-designed pipe organ that is a powerful example of an instrument vital to the life of the church.  Someday our students may be faced with forming a committee to decide whether or not to invest in a pipe organ. Experiencing how a pipe organ supports sustained congregational singing should be part of each student’s education at the Seminary as they plan and present programs that coordinate liturgy and music.


Please consider investing in Union Presbyterian Seminary’s educational programming by supporting our Organ Fund. Estimated at a cost of $400,000, the Seminary’s very modest new organ is on the low end when it comes to purchasing a new pipe organ.
