Making Good Pastors Better

In 2012, Christian Theological Seminary launched the Center for Pastoral Excellence, an initiative to support the next generation of church leaders through a range of programs addressing “the long arc of ministry” from vocational discernment and seminary training, to sustaining clergy through their careers. Initial programs include:

The Discipleship Project, a cohort-based, immersive masters of divinity program which aims to help new pastors preach as Jesus would

The New Media Project, a research project that helps religious leaders reflect theologically about and learn about ways religious use media

The Clergy Renewal Program provides congregations with grants for pastoral renewal programs

The Pastoral Excellence Network offers resources for theology schools and learners

A preaching and worship initiative supports excellence and innovation in worship
