A Year of Discerning by Doing
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 Newbigin Year, a part-time, cohort-based, distance learning program designed to help you discover more about yourself, the city, and your sense of call.
Students who complete the Newbigin Year may apply for advanced standing at the following partner seminaries:
- Austin Theological Seminary (TX)
- Fuller Theological Seminary (CA)
- Pittsburgh Theological Seminary (PA)
- Western Theological Seminary (MI)
Upon satisfactory review of student portfolios by the partner seminaries, students will receive advanced standing with credit toward an M.Div. or M.A. program.
Students who wish to take the courses as a standalone program will receive a Certificate in Public Theology upon completion of the Newbigin Year. The certificate program is especially well-suited for non-ordained church leadership positions.
