AMSTERDAM - The annual meeting of the Union of Baptist Congregations has approved the move of its seminary to the Free University (in Dutch simply known as the VU) in Amsterdam. The Baptists had become concerned over the direction of the University of Utrechtís department of theology, which focused more on academic achievements than on the training of ministers. Instead, the VU caters to educating future clergy and has landed several other such schools in recent years, including the Theological College Azusa (Pentecostal and Evangelical) and the Restored Reformed Theological College (Hersteld Hervormed).
