PESM

Today I sent in my application for Pacific Evangelical School of Ministry. It’s a Masters of Ministry program to further my education. While it’s not the kind of masters that I can get a doctorate off of, I can transfer to George Fox and get a Masters of Theology and never have to worry about an Masters of Divinity (nothing against them, I’d just prefer a M.Th. to a M.Div.).

It’s a three year program, after which I can answer a doctirnal statment to my board of ministry and become fully ordained. I will do this because I honestly believe in our denomination, it’s leadership, theology and (most of it’s) structural systems. I don’t believe, however, in the baby-blue background on our deonminational home-page…it’s kind of calming, yet I am suspicious of that blue…

Plus, we have a history of unity instead of division and I think that’s a beautiful thing.
