The Ministry Fellowship
A nine-month learning experience that offers theological formation for exploring the spiritual, public, and missional dimensions of Christian witness.
The Ministry Fellowship is for those who are looking for supportive peer relationships, tools for rekindling their theological imagination, and a more expansive vision of Christian ministry.
Two Tracks Available
1. Pre-Seminary: For those who are thinking about seminary and would like to spend a year exploring theological education. Advanced standing with credit available.
2. Post-Seminary: For pastors and other ministry leaders who have completed seminary but desire continuing education.
Do I need to move to San Francisco? Thanks to our innovative use of online educational technology, you can do the fellowship from anywhere in the world. Participants are required to attend one intensive in Denver (fall) and two intensives in San Francisco (winter & spring). The intensives are three days long and specific dates can be found under the “Gatherings” tab on this page.
What is the time commitment? Learning activities involve varying lengths of time for different individuals, depending on their learning styles. On average, participants should plan to spend 3-5 hours reading + 1-2 hours in reflection/discussion each week. The total time commitment is approximately 4-7 hours per week in addition to the three on-site, face-to-face gatherings over the course of the year. For seminary credit, students should plan on an additional 8-10 hours per week of formal assignments.
Can I get academic credit? It is possible to do the work of the fellowship for advanced standing with credit at one of our partner seminaries (Austin, Fuller, Pittsburgh, and Western).
