Covenant Theological Seminary

The seminary of the Presbyterian Church of America, Covenant was one of the first schools we visited when we began the work of the Institute under the grant from the Lilly Endowment, “Connecting Calling, Colleges and Congregations.” Eager to explore with us ways that we could work together, they have drawn us into their teaching of both MDiv and DMin students.

A remarkably fruitful relationship, we have spent days with their faculty thinking through the nexus of faith to vocation to culture, and we have now begun a new DMin program in Faith, Vocation, and Culture, co-sponsored by Covenant and the Institute. In and through it all we are committed together to recasting the paradigm of how the church teaches vocation, viz. that vocation is integral, not incidental, to the missio Dei.
