By September 8, 2020No Comments

Dear Colleagues:

Our announcement of the new Certificate of African American Ministry (CAAM) program at LTS has been well-received. We aren’t surprised… we have been dreaming of such a program for a long time.

This letter is to follow up with you about the program. The application deadline of September 15 is coming soon. If you are considering becoming part of the of the inaugural cohort for the Certificate of African American Ministry (CAAM) program this fall, or encouraging someone else to do so, don’t delay!

The faculty we are assembling are African American scholars and pastors who are sensitive to the needs of African American clergy. The courses within the Certificate of African American Ministry Program are organized around the 16 areas of ministerial practice of The General Commission on the Order of Ministry.

We also wanted to share the good news that a limited number of CAAM scholarships also have become available to help relieve the cost of books, fees, and technology support related to enrollment in the program. Applicants can receive more information about this scholarship program by sending an email to [email protected]

For more information about the CAAM program, see the attached flyer, or go to: This information provides an outline of the requirements for the program and how to begin the application process.
