Ministers Flourishing as Whole Persons

We know that theological education is a troubled industry, perhaps a canary in the mine of higher education.  Patterns of declining congregational life, shifting modes of educational delivery, eroding endowments, and aging properties with heavy deferred maintenance all conspire to challenge how we prepare ministers. Central has addressed many of these concerns, and our growth demonstrates response and innovation.

My Experience:

Mark Harmon, M.Div. Student

It was the careful and caring prodding of my professors that helped me move from envisioning ministry primarily as preaching and teaching to primarily caring for and creating community. During my journey towards a Master of Divinity degree, I have been blessed to learn from professors who are both intelligent and wise. They have encouraged me to push through some difficult personal experiences and beyond the limits of my self-perception. While they have imbued me with the technical knowledge necessary to perform my ministerial duties, they have also inspired me to think independently and to own my faith. There is, however, another essential element to my seminary experience that has greatly enriched me as a person – the diverse and faithful student community with whom I have had the privilege to learn. Both the faculty and the student body have contributed to my understanding of my calling, and many of the relationships forged during this experience will endure long after graduation.

My Experience:

Gary Green, Alum (M.Div. 2012)

I am currently in my second year in Brite Divinity School’s Ph.D. program in Pastoral Theology. The program is enriching and challenging, and is allowing me to explore research questions that have deep implications for me both vocationally and personally. Little did I know at the time of my matriculation, Central’s M.Div. program was preparing me for this unique experience. The curriculum and the culture of Central, nurtured my deep interests in theological education, and equipped me for meaningful ministerial engagement. Because of create’s focus on praxis and innovative ministry involvement, I found myself uniquely positioned for various levels of engagement with the Church, communities, and the wider global context.
