Avoiding the Attic

Berry, Chet G.
In this paper I will propose a different process and offering than is presently offered within traditional seminary training. I am not proposing replacement of theological training, but do propose that theological adherence alone will not offer the advances in leadership training that is necessary for a quickly changing American context. I will entertain this specific challenge. How can Saint Mary of the Woods College serve to address teh many leadership challenges of the faith community while building upon the historical legacy of spiritual leadership preparation programs of years past...specifically addressing the elimination of the Pastoral Theology Masters program. I will propose the adoption and implementation of a Faith-Based Leadership Program for Saint Mary of the Woods College with recognition of diverse geographic opportunities that my research will support.
