Teaching Pastors
 >  Academics  >  Teaching Pastors

Students in the Master of Divinity degree program at Meadville Lombard are given a unique experience to learn about ministry through the lens of real interaction with an actual congregation. The congregation’s minister is considered a “Teaching Pastor” whose purpose is to be a supervisor, mentor, coach, and model for how to be effective in Unitarian Universalist ministry.

During the term of these two courses, students become involved in the life of the congregation and “learn by doing,” that is, exploring how to enter into the life of a congregation, understand its people and values and, ultimately, learn how to minister to the spiritual and advocacy needs of a congregation 

At the outset of the fall term, Teaching Pastors will receive a sketch of the student’s seminar topics so they are aware of the trajectory of his/her student’s learning. Teaching Pastors are also eligible to enroll in one MLTS course per year free of charge.
