Lee Hinson-Hasty is coordinator for theological education and seminary relations in the Presbyterian Mission Agency of the PC (U.S.A.). Through his work Lee hopes to capture and share a more expansive view of theological education, of church leadership and of vocational discernment as he sees through the eyes of some exciting Presbyterians in and related to seminaries.
"Why not?" is the bold question the Committee on Theological Education is asking itself and the PC(USA) in all it's forms. The process imagined is one where well-formed leaders find places where they can use their gifts for the mission of God. What does Teach for America and similar programs (Peace Corps, Americorps, & our very own PCUSA Young Adult Volunteers) teach us?
How can we connect a new generation of gifted seminary graduates we believe God is calling to serve with visionary and faithful Christian ministries? The Committee on Theological Education encourages the PC(USA) to ask: "Why not?"
