ETS is a fully accredited ecumenical seminary committed to providing the best theological education in southeastern Michigan while remaining rooted in Detroit. We offer several degree programs in ministry as well as a certificate program theological studies and an urban ministry diploma. We are committed to embracing the diversity found in our city and suburbs and to transcend the boundaries typical in such a setting in order to overcome alienation and help build bridges between our city and its suburbs.
We train students to become effective church and lay leaders for the 21st century church, through a course of study which emphasizes the centrality of Christian ethics and social justice ideals. ETS encourages students to begin their training with a course in church and society, whose purpose is to examine how social position provides the foundations for beliefs and values. We provide opportunities for students to practice their beliefs within urban ministry settings, and to work with an outstanding faculty of academic and church leaders who serve as mentors for the journey.
We combine the education of professional pastoral skills with the intentionally multi-cultural, multi-ethnic environment of our students. We use dialogue as the method to transcend the boundaries, overcome the alienation, and impart the wisdom that empowers church leaders to proclaim God’s message of undivided love, healing, and hope while ministering to their congregations. We integrate our feeding program with our Ministry Practicum curriculum affording students the opportunity to witness first hand, the practice of pastoral leadership in an urban setting.
