STAY PUT AND GET OUT

No need to relocate and ideal for people with busy lives. Weekend and week long face-to-face courses taught in four travel experiences (August, October, January, April). Learn in great cities and ministry settings across the country (Los Angeles, New York, Indianapolis, southern Florida, Minneapolis, Seattle, Nashville, Chicago, Dallas). 


CURIOUSLY OPEN

Curriculum for progressively minded leaders seeking a just and generous expression of faith. Built on the five practices of ministry—what pastors and community leaders actually do: inspire, lead, serve, love and live—with the academic disciplines woven into each practice.


WORTH EVERY PENNY

OPEN scholarships make possible a cost effective tuition of $6,000 per year (travel costs additional) for a full Master of Divinity degree from Christian Theological Seminary in four years. Up to four seminary courses can be transferred into this degree with approval.


 

OPEN is thrilled to announce the Open MDiv from Christian Theological Seminary. OPEN and CTS have partnered to provide this forward-thinking MDiv. Courses begin this fall.
