Pathways in Ministry

Pathways in Ministry is an initiative of the School of Divinity Office of Career Services that provides workshops and panel discussions for students to be exposed to the many paths of engaging in professional ministry, to build skills to aid their search for ministry placement, and to prepare for the demands of ministry by learning important personal, professional, and spiritual practices. For questions or more information, please contact Rev. Chris Copeland, Director of Leadership Development & Spiritual Life: copelact@wfu.edu; 336.758.3629.
