Central is committed to serving the whole community of faith, which includes persons preparing for vocational ministry as well as those who desire to deepen their understanding of service to Christ in a variety of lay ministries in church and society. As a seminary, we seek to honor diversity of giftedness and callings.
While Central prepares women and men for ministry, we realize that Christian ministry is always linked to congregational life. The seminary prepares the men and women recommended to us by churches, and Central offers back to Christ’s church ministers who have been formed by the intentional practices of theological education, study, worship, prayer, hospitality and faithful companioning. This education is practice-oriented, contextual, and reflexive.
