Pathways@CTU

 

A Living-Learning Community Co-Creating the Church of Tomorrow

Overview

New for the 2022-23 Academic Year, Pathways @CTU, a new Living-Learning community of students, will serve as a catalyst to help deepen CTU’s institutional commitment to justice and activism with new programming, new outreach, and new insights to bring to their classrooms and the Church. The Pathways @CTU program is focused on forming young adults, especially those from Latinx, African American, Asian American/Pacific Islander, and LGBTQ+ communities, for ministry in today’s Church.

 

Over the course of a two year mutual commitment, this community of students will earn a Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies while receiving:

 

  • Full-tuition scholarship
  • Graduate assistantship
  • Intentional community living
  • Living stipend
  • Integrated personal and community formation
  • Leadership development
