The important purpose of the MCCC program is to help you transition from your education directly into ministry work that aligns with your desire to help people through difficult periods in their life. The program begins with an immersion into the theological and theoretical foundations of counseling and caring ministries. Students then move into more advanced study of contextual ministry and skill development through practice in the classroom and internships. Students who become graduates are committed to spiritual growth, empathy toward others, and being a healing presence for hurting people.
Once you are finished with the MCCC program, the goal for each student is to apply their knowledge and skills to be a caring leader in their community. Whether you want to work full-time or part-time in a church or ministry-related organization, we help you to achieve that transition. Many of our students work outside their church in their larger community. Ministry is evolving in a technological age where spiritual care is increasingly important. As the future of ministry continues to emerge, churches and people will always need listeners and caregivers.
At Central Seminary, we welcome students from all over the world with a shared purpose of serving humanity through vocational paths. That is also why learning outcomes are designed to help students prepare for ministry in global and multicultural contexts. In the MCCC, coursework will reflect the need for students to work with a wide range of people, and ethnicities.
Central Seminary also offers opportunities for continuing education that are free for anyone interested in participating. These special programs are typically offered in online formats, which makes it convenient for most students to participate. When you are part of the Central Seminary community, we encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities for self-growth and networking with like-minded seminarians.
We also encourage students to embody an innovative, entrepreneurial spirit as they approach their education. With us, you can benefit from personal and spiritual growth while working to create positive, lasting change in the world through ministry work. While students in the MCCC are required to take this program at our Shawnee, KS location, we incorporate technology into the delivery of curricula as much as possible. As a result, seminary students with busy lives can pursue their ministry education, without putting their current work and family responsibilities on hold.
