The Art of Ministry
Practical ministry studies that develop pastoral habits and dispositions
Our Art of Ministry program attends to three related sources of ministry wisdom: ministerial identity, ministry practice, and theological reflection. Our ministry studies program has a flexible approach allowing students to prepare for a wide variety of vocations through a selection of interdisciplinary electives in Proclamation, Relational Care, Community Building, and Formation, rather than requiring introductory courses.
We take the long-view perspective, helping our students from the time they arrive on campus to find their academic and vocational passions and prepare them for lives of meaning and purpose. Wake Divinity provides resources, career counseling, job listings, workshops, career assessment tools, resume-building, and other services to help students discern their call and prepare for their vocation.
