Religion, Theology & Ministry

“We are not living in a world where all roads are radii of a circle and where all, if followed long enough, will therefore draw gradually nearer and finally meet at the centre: rather in a world where every road, after a few miles, forks into two, and each of those into two again, and at each fork, you must make a decision.”—C. S. Lewis (Writer & Theologian)


This community is a place of wondering and exploration through the lens of religious understanding, theological reflection, and ministerial discernment. Making meaning of the world applying these tools has been a universal project throughout the history of humankind. There is a place of all explorers braving the many roads that lead to self-awareness, social consciousness, and service to the Holy and others.


Those interested in careers and vocations related to religion, theology and ministry gather here to collect resources, network, connect with alums working in related fields, and consider internships that offer experiential components to classroom curriculum.  Whether considering academic careers in the arenas of theology and religion, or discerning a vocational call to a ministry-related career, this community offers opportunity for conversation, communication and consideration of possibilities.  Ministry-related careers can include: chaplaincy in hospital, military, prison and campus settings among others, congregational leadership, and faith-based community organizing and advocacy.  This community will seek to develop approaches to multifaith and interreligious academic and ministry careers that are innovative, entrepreneurial and improvisational in order to serve religious communities and the world with intellect, compassion and concern for the wellbeing of all creation.
