Seminary is an amazing graduate program here that's offered through Graceland University and also in paired with the sponsoring Church of the Community of Christ. And what Seminary is all about, It's about the cohort model, which means that the people you start the program with, are the people that are going to be with you every single step of the way. You take one class at a time, so you can really focus and hone in what does it actually mean to be a believer and a follower of Christ? It is open to all faith backgrounds, you do not have to be a member of the community, Christ, but you do handle certain issues of the church handles today. So where do we fit into a world that has weapons of mass destruction? Where do we fit into a world that has hatred and biases? This is what seminary tries to teach you how to be a leader, but also to be a true follower and disciple of Christ. So one of the best parts about seminary, and the Graceland Seminary is that it is 100% designed for people who are working full-time, They are not only extremely aware of the circumstances of each student has, but they're extremely flexible, and are willing to work with you, just so you can try to get that work done.
What we do in Community of Christ Seminary is give tools and resources that can tangibly deconstruct behaviors and cultures of oppression and marginalization and shifting them toward cultures of inclusion and belonging. And that is such a radically profound and important need for our world today. And so anyone who's considering seminary, that's where I start, do you want to change the world? And if your answer is yes, then come to Graceland University's Community of Christ seminary.
