Teaching Congregations is a component in M.Div. training to become an ordained pastor. The graduation requirement for all M.Div. students in all denominations is four semesters. The point of the Teaching Congregations program is for you to involve yourself in the life of a specific congregation, engage the mentoring guidance of the congregation’s pastor, and connect your coursework with the context of a congregation. How you are involved will depend upon the intersection between your gifts and talents, your mentor pastor’s guidance, and your congregation’s needs.
More information is available on the FE 4021 and FE 4022 coursepages. In the meantime, please use the information and links below to familiarize yourself with the Teaching Congregations process.
