Claremont School of Theology and the 5th District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church are pleased to announce a new relationship.

“This historic agreement with AME’s 5th District will integrate existing AME educational programs that prepare men and women to become ordained elders with Claremont’s M.Div. program,” said Claremont School of Theology President, Rev. Dr. Jerry Campbell.

“Graduates will meet all AME ordination requirements, as well as receiving an accredited degree,” added Faculty Dean, Dr. Philip Clayton. “It is the next step in CST's move to better serve the entire church, educating men and women for ministry, leadership, and service across the whole range of Christian denominations."
