The Discipleship Project is a groundbreaking approach to theological education inspired by Jesus’ pedagogy in the New Testament. It seeks to answer the question "How would Jesus teach?" and is in part a response to the renaissance of interest across the country today in both new and traditional forms of intentional community and spiritual formation.
The program offers up to 12 full-ride scholarships for full-time, residential M.Div. students each year, including tuition and a $12,000 annual stipend. In addition to their regular M.Div. coursework, each year’s cohort of scholars will meet regularly with two faculty mentors, engage outstanding community leaders, and visit vibrant congregations to learn first-hand about what works—and what doesn’t — in Christian ministry today.
The Discipleship Project is one of five programs of the Center for Pastoral Excellence at Christian Theological Seminary.
