Imagining and embodying sustainable ways of life in this world.
Students live and train with a small cohort for two years under the guidance of a resident director. Training consists of an ongoing combination of intentional community living, study, work, service, mentoring, worship, and play. Participation in community life is a vital component, as the student’s academic work and personal reflections is related to the larger experience of discipleship. The ability to offer and receive hospitality with grace is also an important value. Students actively engage in the community life at Church of All Nations (CAN), and also connect with and learn from other communities and organizations.
Integrative Learning for Social Transformation
The period of study is full-time for two years with three eight-month tracks, with each track building on the previous. A manageable amount of reading is assigned each month, with daily seminar discussions facilitated by seminary leaders, by other local pastors, and occasionally by professors and activists who share our vision – both local and from around the country. Readings and discussions are interdisciplinary in nature, so that students learn to make connections across a wide range of fields.
If interested in attending in fall 2016, please fill out an application (available by clicking the box to the right). After receiving your application, we will arrange a phone conversation to begin discernment together. Feel free to contact us with any questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
