CST Welcomes United Methodist Students from Fuller Theological Seminary Under New Agreement
Claremont School of Theology (CST) and Fuller Theological Seminary (FTS) have reached an agreement that will allow United Methodist students who are matriculating at FTS to pursue coursework in United Methodist history, doctrine, and polity at CST. The letter of agreement, signed by the schools’ respective presidents on February 17th, will take effect for the fall semester of the 2014-15 academic year. “CST is excited by this opportunity to support Fuller Theological Seminary students in their spiritual and theological development within the United Methodist tradition,” says CST President Kah-Jin Jeffrey Kuan. “As an institution deeply committed to training future leaders of The United Methodist Church, both clergy and lay leaders alike, we look forward to welcoming Fuller students to our campus community."
Fuller students included under the agreement will benefit from access to several course offerings on topics directly related to the United Methodist tradition. These offerings include courses on United Methodist Doctrine, United Methodist History and Polity, and Mission and Evangelism in Christian Tradition. All three courses are led by the Rev. Dr. Jack Jackson, E. Stanley Jones Assistant Professor of Evangelism, Mission, and Global Methodism at CST. Jackson also co-leads CST’s Center for Global Methodism.
