Grant received to expand vocational formation curriculum
The Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion has awarded a grant to the Wake Forest University School of Divinity to develop new course offerings in the School’s vocational formation curriculum. The Center’s “Expanding Ministry Formation into New Pedagogical Contexts” grant will support the work of the divinity school and six other schools of theology to explore the process of teaching ministry formation in contexts outside the classroom.
The School of Divinity will use the grant to create two new courses in the Art of Ministry program and two in other curricular areas to support the formation of students in vocations for ministry. The Art of Ministry courses will be convened primarily in field sites and will create opportunities for students to explore emerging ministry practices. The grant will also enable faculty in other curricular areas to partner with area ministry sites to connect theological reflection to the practices of ministry.
Fully funded by the Lilly Endowment Inc. and located at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana, the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion seeks to strengthen and enhance education in North American theological schools, colleges and universities. The Center helps build enabling environments for good teaching and learning. Read more about the Wabash Center’s history and other grant projects at http://www.wabashcenter.wabash.edu/.
