Nazarene Theological Seminary receives grants from the Association of Theological Schools for faculty development and innovative programming

$50,000 Innovation Grant will support the development of a new NTS initiative, “Entrepreneurship and Ministry in the 21st Century.” In collaboration with the Kauffman Foundation, a recognized leader in social entrepreneurship, NTS will develop curriculum and training opportunities for local pastors and church districts. Today’s pastors and ministry leaders must be creative, adaptive, and forward-thinking in their ministry contexts. The ministerial entrepreneurship curriculum combines critical theological reflection with increasingly important skills in entrepreneurship and innovation.

$15,000 Faculty Development Grant will support NTS faculty in the implementation of new hybrid learning approaches for distance education students. The grant coincides with NTS’ revised residency format for distance MDiv students which creates robust face-to-face learning through four one-week encounters in Kansas City each October. The learning format emphasizes deeper interaction between faculty and students, increased resources for ongoing personal and spiritual formation, and reduced travel, food and lodging costs for most distance students.
