Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is pleased to announce the Course of Study School Class of 2020! We are extremely proud of the COS Class of 2020 and all they have accomplished. The Course of Study School prepares pastoral leaders for local church ministry through a 5-year, 20-course curriculum established by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of The United Methodist Church.

The Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion has awarded Dr. Wonhee Anne Joh, professor of theology and culture at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, a grant for her project, “Toward a Trauma-Informed Pedagogy during a Global Pandemic and Remote Learning in Theological Education.” In addition, Joh was also invited by Wabash Center to participate in their year-long symposium, “Teaching and Improvisation: Virtual Symposium Using Creativity Pedagogy.”

What if? What if Jesus had not died on the cross? How would he have lived his remaining years, and what would he say about his life, his ministry, and his alleged death? In his new book, Postcards from Egypt: Reimagining Jesus from the Gospel of Mark (Wipf and Stock, October 2020), Dr. Osvaldo Vena, emeritus professor of New Testament interpretation at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, explores an alternative version of Jesus’ life both before and after the crucifixion.

There are a lot of factors to weigh when deciding to follow God's call and pursue a theological education. A central concern for most is how to pay for one’s education. Through Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary’s new Early Action Scholarships program, we will help students get the information they need even sooner. The Early Action Scholarships program will guarantee prospective students a decision no later than January 15, 2021, and they will have the opportunity to qualify for new scholarships ranging from 65% to 100% tuition.
