Who are we?

The Stevenson School for Ministry believes discernment is deeply important for spiritual growth. Almost all of our learning happens online as opposed to face-to-face. 

Through discernment, we explore the range of vocations (diakonia, priesthood, lay ministry) in which we as the Body of Christ can engage.  Discernment helps us learn to articulate the places where God is active in our lives through a process of listening, reflecting, and responding in circles of community.  And, actively engaging in discernment helps us to identify our gifts for ministry while discovering new learning opportunities to serve God and our neighbor.

The Stevenson School for Ministry is dedicated to the lifelong learning and discernment processes of all Episcopalians in the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania and beyond.  We seek to make theological education available to all, because we believe it to be essential to furthering the mission and ministry of the Church.
