M.Div. Emphasis – Quaker Ministry
Within Friends meetings and beyond, Quaker values speak to the condition of people who seek stronger relationships with God, humankind and all creation. This appeal springs from the Spirit-led nature of the Quaker faith and its commitment to testing those leadings in community with others. Friends rich history, beliefs and practices have much to offer the world
The Quaker ministry emphasis explores Friends understandings of God, humanity, faith and practice. These provide a rich context for considering how ministry is offered individually and within corporate settings.
ABOUT THE QUAKER MINISTRY EMPHASIS
