Ministerial Studies Instructor Position Opening
Jun 20, 2018
At the present time, Mid-America does not have a faculty member who is appointed full-time in the area of ministerial studies. The Seminary’s desire to combine academic study with training for ministerial competency, including the oversight of the Ministerial Apprenticeship Program, would be enhanced by the appointment of an instructor whose teaching responsibility is exclusively in the area of ministerial studies.
The Faculty believes that the appointment of a faculty member in the ministerial studies division is especially strategic, but not an easy one to achieve. An appointee to this position needs not only to be biblically, confessionally, and theologically sound, but also to be a person who has significant pastoral experience and proven competence in ministerial work.
This places a large emphasis on Mid-America Reformed Seminary being not only an academic institution, but a school where students are prepared for the vocation of the pastoral ministry.
Applicants should be able to teach courses in ministerial studies and practical theology, including homiletics, missions and evangelism, and pastoral care and counseling. They should also ordinarily have a post-graduate degree in ministerial studies or practical theology.
Membership in a Reformed or Presbyterian church, ordination to the office of minister, and pastoral experience are required.
How to apply
