Sensing a call and wondering about next steps? What if discerning your call to ministry involved a year of theological study where you already are? What if receiving your seminary education led to a life more connected to what God is doing in the world?

We invite you to consider The Ministry Fellowship, a part-time, cohort-based, distance learning program designed to help you discover more about yourself, the city, and your sense of call.

Try a year of seminary course work with us, get advanced standing if you decide to continue on to a formal master’s degree program at one of our partner schools.
