JCSTS' Educational Model Is--
competency-based—allowing learners to demonstrate new ministry-related competencies at their own pace and in accordance with clearly defined outcomes
collaborative—creating diverse peer-to-peer learning opportunities under the guidance of a coach/facilitator
customizable—providing resources, support, and coaching for self-starters seeking skills in one or more of JCSTS’ primary program areas
The JCSTS Institute for Worship, Preaching, and Sacred Arts provides a collaborative learning environment where worship leaders, musicians, and artists can expand their liturgical repertoire through the unique lens of the African-American religious experience.
These interactive webinars help participants speak, do, and live their faith. They attest the critical intersection of spirituality and justice and help create informational networks among groups of people with similar interests.
Pastoral leaders may feel challenged to meet real and perceived expectations associated with servant leadership. JCSTS, in partnership with the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, is committed to providing resources that promote clergy and congregational wellbeing.
