BTSR announces new concentration in M.Div. degree program

For the 2012-13 academic year and beyond, Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond (BTSR) will offer a concentration in Justice and Peacebuilding as part of its M.Div degree program. “This new emphasis helps BTSR live out values that have been inherent in our seminary from its founding,” said Dr. Israel Galindo, Dean. “It will expand the options for ministry in the world for our students.”

The degree concentration is in partnership with the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding in Harrisonburg, VA (http://www.emu.edu/cjp/). The concentration components for this concentration will reside primarily with the summer institute of the Center, an accredited program with a world-class reputation and an established record of leadership in the field of justice and peacebuilding. The program includes students from over 50 countries representing many cultures. “The new concentration, and the partnership with the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, offers a unique emphasis that meets current ethical and emergent global realities for ministry,” explains Galindo. “Our faculty is excited to offer our students this opportunity.”
