Continuing Education

Sewanee Ministry Collaborative

The School of Theology has established the Sewanee Ministry Collaborative, a program that will create mutual mentoring groups for clergy. These groups will provide a means for clergy to empower one another to flourish in their particular contexts, that is, to have a renewed sense of call to ministry in a particular community.

Fellows-in-residence are clergy and laity who spend two weeks at The School of Theology for a time of reflection, recreation, study, and sharing in community. While there is no formal program, fellows are provided with faculty consultants, if they so desire, and opportunities to attend classes and other University events.

The School of Theology is now accepting applications for the fellows-in-residence program. Fellows visit for two weeks to pursue their own programs of academic study and spiritual refreshment, and to share in the seminary community. There is space for three fellows in each term. Each successful applicant receives a $500 fellowship and faculty supervision.

Participants in the bishops-in-residence program spend one week at The School of Theology for a time of reflection, recreation, study, and spiritual renewal. They participate as fully as they choose in the life of the community. Although there is no formal program, bishops frequently celebrate, preach, lecture, or otherwise share their experiences and insights with the seminary. Participation is via invitation.
