The School of Divinity is interested in preparing students to be public leaders in diverse ministry contexts. 

Pathways in Ministry

Pathways in Ministry provides workshops and panel discussions to support students in their vocational discernment by exposing them to the many paths of engaging in professional ministry and to provide resources for personal and professional skill development so students may attain and thrive in life-giving ministry careers. These workshops include such offerings as: “Finding and Keeping the Perfect Job,” “Building a Narrative Resume,” “Prison and Jail Chaplaincy,” “Career and Internship Fair,” “Starting a Nonprofit,” and “Bi-Vocational Ministry.”

Career Services

Career Services is the dimension of the School of Divinity that assists current students and recent alumni with finding vocational pathways for future employment. Career Services, which is housed within Student Services, provides the following services:

  • resources for students from vocational seminars and workshops to denominational connections to career counseling;
  • opportunities for potential employers to network with students and find future employees;
  • job postings from congregations, chaplaincy settings, nonprofit organizations, and other ministry agencies that are made available to students through email announcements and website postings.

Students and recent alumni are encouraged to utilize the resources of Career Services throughout and after their educational programs at the School of Divinity.
