The Center for the Ministry of Teaching (CMT) works to support and enrich Christian education in the Episcopal Church and our partner denominations. It offers degree programs, publications, consultations & workshops, and a library of books, curricula, and film that is open to all. It conducts applied research, and program evaluation with a focus on leadership development for life-long faith formation.
This program is for ordained and lay ministers with at least three years of experience who work full-time as professionals in educational settings—heads of schools, chaplains, campus ministers, rectors and senior pastors, teachers of religion, and judicatory and para-church ministry educational leaders.
The program is a 48-credit academic Master’s degree, accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS). It prepares students for competent leadership grounded in Christian theology in Christian education/formation, camping programs, and faith-based schools.
