Listen to a few of our PATHWAYS participants talk about their experiences with our program.

 

 

 

Graduate schools and programs in theology play an important role in the preparation of pastoral leaders for the United Church of Christ.  PATHWAYS is a vital part of The Non-Seminary Theological Education Consortium, previously called The Regional Theological Education Consortium. The consortium is a hub for multiple models of theological education.  As a key member in the consortium, PATHWAYS helps to connect UCC conference and association-based programs that work together in the formation of Members in Discernment toward authorized ministry, as well as a commitment to lay theological education. PATHWAYS is a multiple paths to ministry program that is available regardless of region or location.  We work together with seminaries and other theological education program to help prepare the future church.

Affordable

PATHWAYS believes that quality theological education should be available to any who want it. That’s why we provide a cost-effective online theological program accessible to all. 4-week Explorer courses are only $124, 6-week courses just $350, 9-week courses Supervised Ministry courses are $470, and our 12-week UCC History and Polity course is only $625.

Flexible

Because classes are not bound by geography and have a flexible weekly schedule, PATHWAYS courses are able to fit into the rest of your busy life. Courses typically involve weekly readings and discussion in a facilitated online forum, offering practical, open-minded education and a learner-centered environment where participants can bring their own questions and insights.

Accessible

Our courses have between 4 and 15 participants. This allows for deep and productive discussions in the online forum. We know that a small class size allows the participants to develop learning relationships with each other and for facilitators to push participants to a more indepth learning experience.
