Partnership benefits EMCers in Canada and beyond

OTTERBURNE, Man.—Providence Theological Seminary is expanding course offerings in Anabaptism to benefit students, EMCers included.

Courses deal with Anabaptist history, contemporary theology, global studies, and pastoral theology. They are informed by Anabaptist traditions of discipleship, mutual accountability, social justice, and peaceful living.

Students in all master’s programs can benefit, an Anabaptist Studies Track (AST) is now available within its Master of Divinity (MDiv) program, and courses can be adapted for undergrads.

The Anabaptist Studies Track within the MDiv program allows PTS to provide theologically-sensitive, ministry-oriented, pastorally-focused training at a graduate level.

Providence’s location in Manitoba, where about half of the EMC’s churches are currently located, allows PTS the privilege of training many EMCers. Flexible instruction delivery (modular and online, as well as semester-based) aids EMCers across Canada and out of the country.

The AST was developed with input from the EMC. While the EMC has no financial obligations, the program is mutually beneficial. Quite likely, more EMCers have studied at PTS than at all other seminaries combined.
