Program Overview

The Educational Ministries and Leadership (EML) Department was created in 2013 as a merger of the Christian Education and Spiritual Formation & Leadership departments.

The goal of the EML department is to contribute to the Seminary's purpose of developing godly educators and servant-leaders through the use of:

  1. Leadership studies and courses to develop student knowledge and competency in leadership
  2. Biblical curriculum in a relational context designed to encourage character development and spiritual maturity through community
  3. Contextually based internship experiences  students integrate classroom studies and character growth with field ministry as they acquire, reinforce, and refine ministry knowledge and skills

Educational Ministries and Leadership develops students through two major programs:

Spiritual Formation

Servant Leadership (Internships)

First-year ThM, MA/CE, MA/CM, MA/CL, MA/MW, and MA(BS) students are required to enroll in SF100 their first four semesters, followed by the 2 or 3 hour Servant Leadership Internship that corresponds to their degree track. MA/BEL students are required to enroll in SF245 their first two semesters. Although not required to enroll in Spiritual Formation, STM students must enroll in a 1-hour Servant Leadership Internship.

Other degree plan students are welcomed to participate in either SF100 or a Servant Leadership Internship as an elective of their degree plan.
