The task of integrating one’s theological education and ministry practice does not always run smoothly. In this course we partner with those who have already made this transition to help shepherd the way through a series of community-leader led workshops.
It’s impossible to learn everything you need to know for the immensity of a ministry vocation in a short three-year program. That’s why lists abound detailing, “things they didn’t teach me in seminary.” This course won’t close the loop on that learning. You’ll still have your (ever expanding) list! This course will, however, help you acquire the integrative skills to facilitate your lifelong learning on-the-job.
Students create a learning plan for the course in relation to a number of prompts: (1) For what kind(s) of ministry have I been preparing over the past few years? (2) What spiritual practice(s) do I need to engage so that my ministry contributes to my faith’s flourishing rather than its withering? (3) What do I still need – that this course can provide – in order to pursue ministry in a healthy and vital way? (4) How will I bring the resources of my theological education to bear on the new and challenging situations I will face in my ministry?
