The Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations has played host this week to a group of doctoral students from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. The ten students and faculty have been taking a week-long seminar course entitled ‘The Church in a World of Displaced Persons.’
Upon the recommendation of the faculty and the president, the board of trustees of Union Presbyterian Seminary has appointed the Rev. Dr. Rebecca L. Davis as associate professor of Christian education, with tenure, at the Charlotte campus; and Dr. James E. Taneti as assistant professor of world Christianity at the Richmond campus. Taneti’s primary role will be as director of the Syngman Rhee Global Mission Center for Christian Education.
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) related seminaries Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Columbia Theological Seminary, McCormick Theological Seminary and San Francisco Theological Seminary are among the 32 schools nominated this year as Seminaries that Change the World.
Theological education is a critical resource for congregations and congregants in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). When the chaos of the world is great, theologically wise leaders help us all imagine promising ways we can live into the hopeful future God is calling us toward.
