The Discipleship Project
A groundbreaking approach to theological education inspired by Jesus’ pedagogy in the New Testament Gospels
How would Jesus teach? It’s a question Christian Theological Seminary (CTS) seeks to answer anew with The Discipleship Project.
In the fall semester of 2012, CTS began offering 12 scholarships for full-time, residential M.Div. students, including tuition and a $12,000 annual stipend. In addition to their regular M.Div. coursework, each year’s cohort of scholars meet regularly with two faculty mentors, engage outstanding community leaders, and visit vibrant congregations to learn first-hand about what works — and what doesn’t — in Christian ministry today.
“According to the Gospels, the ‘school’ Jesus had in mind was often in the field and on the move,” said CTS President Matthew Myer Boulton. “It was immersive, experiential, and grounded in the idea that learning happens best through mission and mentorship. And so it took the form of a relatively small — the word ‘disciple’ means ‘student’— learning together with Jesus, and then staying connected with each other in ministry along the way.”
