Plus this catalog lists our domestic travel opportunities in rural ministry and starts to list electives courses.

Revised 2 December 2021 to hopefully remove the confusion that MADM students are experiencing about whether MN 270W pastoral care is required of them or not.

Proposed as of 19 November 2021.  NOTE: The schedule for the MN 230W Preaching course is very much subject to change, depending on who ultimately will be the instructor(s) for the course, and their particular expectations and availability for teaching. The proposed scheduled given here presumes the chosen instructor(s) can fit into the pattern and mode of teaching that we have used in previous years, which formed the basis for this tentative spring schedule. The reality has yet to unfold on whether this presumption is correct or not. Therefore, students expecting to be in MN 230W Preaching will also need to remain flexible and be prepared for possible adjustments being necessary in the schedule that might also not appear to be ideal to your short-term liking. Best to keep your eye focused on the final goal, which is the completion of this necessary requirement in order to proceed on to such requirements as your internship and other future courses. May this disclaimer on the matter be all that needs to be said the Registrar, and hopefully instead everything works out as needed.

January Interim 2022

This is the updated 2022 J-Term catalog, as of 19 November 2021, with now adding an asynchronous course option, and three course options from LSTC and four from PLTS, plus a non-ELCA Hispanic Summer Program course in January. The previous most recent changes were the cancellation (postponement to 2023) of the Holy Land trip, that the Eco-justice J-Term is now Synchronous-Zoom only, with no travel to Arizona, plus updates on enrollment openings.

All offerings, but particularly all courses that involve travel, are still subject to change or cancellation between now and January 2022, pending ongoing pandemic or conditions of world conflict. Continue to monitor for updates.

Contact the named instructor for each course for further details on any of our J-Term course offerings.
