The M.T.S. deepens students’ capacity for lay vocations in the church and the world, including chaplaincy, but is not intended to prepare students for ordination. The degree is also open to students who are already ordained, particularly international students, who want to further their theological education.
Like CDSP’s M.Div. degree, the M.T.S. curriculum centers on mission, discipleship and evangelism. Spiritual formation and worship are integral to the program, and students are required to participate in a spiritual formation group for M.T.S. students and participate in worship either at CDSP or, for online students, in a home congregation.
Through study, worship, prayer, and service, students in the MTS program are formed as Christian disciples who participate in God’s mission and proclaim the Gospel in a context of religious and cultural pluralism.
