Taking the next step in a partnership between the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, CBF Virginia and Union Presbyterian Seminary to establish a Baptist House of Studies, the seminary is now accepting applications for a part-time role to direct the Baptist House.
More information on the role of Director of the Baptist House of Studies at Union Presbyterian Seminary, including instructions on how to apply, are available here.
In the agreement with Union Presbyterian Seminary, the 208-year-old school is establishing a Baptist House of Studies on its Richmond campus and will offer full tuition scholarships for up to 40 qualified full-time Baptist residential students. A new Baptist House Advisory Board will offer input and support as Union Presbyterian Seminary hires the director for the Baptist House, recruits adjunct faculty, engages churches for field education placements and works with seminary administration and trustees to set strategic direction.
This partnership will offer a high-quality traditional, residential theological education option in Central Virginia, which will accept students to begin in the fall of 2021. To facilitate learning across denominations present in the seminary, courses taught through the Baptist House of Studies will be made available to non-Baptist students.
Theological education options expand in Virginia with formation of two new partnerships with CBF (11/16/20)
