Theology, Formation & Evangelism

Theology, Formation & Evangelism brings together several ministries that form and transform disciples, leaders, congregations and new worshiping communities. Our ministries are diverse but each empowers a unique witness to Jesus Christ: 1001 New Worshiping Communities, the Company of New Pastors, Congregational Ministries Publishing, Financial Aid for Service, Evangelism, New Beginnings, Theological Education, Theology and Worship, and Youth/College/Young Adult ministries.

Our work is broken into two groups that partner together to help grow and guide the church and those who work in the service of Christ.

  • Company of Pastors, a program to encourage pastors in their daily faith walk

  • Financial Aid for Service, which provides grants to institutions and scholarships to individuals to help offset the cost of education

미국 장로교는 안수 및 동성 결혼에 대한 최근의 결정들 속에서 도전의 길을 헤치고 앞으로 나아가려는 시도를 하고 있다. 우리는 한 교단으로서 동성간의 성적 관계들 (특정한 조건 하에서: 결혼 관계나 어떤 형태로든지 명백한 헌신적 관계 하에서)을 기독교 신앙에 충실하고 거룩한 것으로 여겨야 할지 말지에 관해 선포하지 않기로 결정했다. 우리는 이러한 입장을 두 번 취했다: 안수와 관련하여… Read more »
