One Year Program Leading to Becoming an Interfaith Minister
September 12, 2015 @ 6:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT
This program focuses upon the skills and knowledge needed to be a modern interfaith minister. By eliminating semester breaks and vacations, the course is equipped to concentrate in one year a solid, qualifying course in interfaith.
Upon successful completion of the program, students are ordained as ministers and are eligible to register legally as clergy. Thus, graduates are eligible to add the honorific “Reverend” to any existing titles and honors they have achieved in their professions.
The program is provided as a series of monthly weekend classroom sessions at the Seminary’s office in New York City. Timely completion of monthly homework assignments is required. All students, at the end of the course, will be expected to attend a four-day retreat during which, among other activities, they will be given an oral examination based on the year’s studies. A thesis is also required. Ordination normally follows the day after the retreat.
We now have three tracks of study:
1. The Comparative Religions Track
2. A Course in Miracles Track and
3. A Rabbinical Track supervised by Rabbi Stuart Paris.
