The Seminary was visited by John Robinson from the missionary organization Linguae Christi who introduced the students to the work and theology of their organization: why and how to support mission work among Europe's indigenous minority language groups.
The name of the organization - Linguæ Christi means "Languages of Christ". Their mission and main task is to spread the gospel among the indigenous minority language groups of Europe. These groups include over 165 different languages and over 100 million people, from Portugal in the west to the easternmost point of Siberia in the east.
A couple of golden nuggets from John:
- "Christianity is a faith of mission - it's in our DNA!"
- "We often think of Jesus' last commandment as a suggestion or an idea, rather than treating it as a Great Commission"!

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
