PATHWAYS Theological Education, Inc. exists to offer a range of stimulating, accessible, and affordable online progressive Christian resources for church leaders, faith explorers, pastors, and those discerning various vocations and callings within and outside the church community.


PATHWAYS responds to the educational needs of an evolving world by continually striving to create innovative, online progressive theological learning and discovery that promote justice, peace and mutual understanding.

PATHWAYS Theological Education, Inc. welcomes participants of all backgrounds and abilities. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), a person is considered to have a disability if that individual (1) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; (2) has a record of having such an impairment; or (3) is regarded as having such an impairment.

What are accommodations? Accommodations are adjustments and modifications that provide participants with disabilities equal access to courses and programs. However, accommodations do not guarantee an outcome or a level of achievement. Accommodations also do not apply to non-disability related circumstances such as work conflicts, vacations, or family commitments.

What is the accommodations request process? Participants are responsible for disclosing the need for accommodations in each course by directly contacting the PATHWAYS Theological Education, Inc. Executive Director (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) as early as possible. Individualized accommodations are then determined through a collaborative process with the course facilitator that takes into account self-reports, available supporting documentation, and academic requirements of the specific course. Requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If you are unsure if accommodations apply to you, we are happy to answer questions using the email below.

PLEASE NOTE: Early and active communication is required as late notification may result in a delay or inability to fulfill a request.

What type of supporting documentation is accepted? The PATHWAYS Theological Education, Inc. accommodations team will review any relevant supporting documentation. However, the documentation must be in English or include a notarized English translation. Please also remove any social security numbers or other unrelated sensitive information.

Below are general documentation guidelines for your reference:

  1. Documentation presents a clear assessment of the disability or condition by a licensed provider with firsthand knowledge and relevant credentials.
  2. Documentation is signed and on letterhead from the licensed treatment provider. Please note forms and templates from other institutions may require  supplemental information.
  3. Documentation is current, preferably within three years. (The age of the documentation may also be dependent upon the nature of the disability and the specific requested accommodation).
  4. Provides a statement of the functional impact and limitations of the disability or condition on major life activities. When applicable, also outlines a prognosis of the symptoms over time and context.
  5. Lists recommended accommodations with an explanation of the relevance of each to the diagnosed disability or condition.

Who do I contact? In order to initiate a request or to inquire about the process, please reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please do NOT send supporting documentation or medical records via email. We will provide instructions on how to submit documentation securely.


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.


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.


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.
