About the Seminary
Sioux Falls Seminary develops servants for their participation in the kingdom mission.
Sioux Falls Seminary is on the move, providing systems of theological education and integrative counseling that are affordable, accessible, relevant, and faithful. Now recognized as one of the most innovative seminaries in the nation, Sioux Falls Seminary is helping change theological education and how it is done both in North America and throughout the world. We invite you to join us in mission.
Today, we are excited to welcome Houston Graduate School of Theology (HGST) as the newest Kairos legacy partner! After considerable prayer and with much enthusiasm, the board of Houston Graduate School of Theology unanimously accepted our invitation to join Kairos, our global network.
As we have been developing the Kairos Project over the better part of the past decade, a significant number of organizations, denominations, schools, and others across the landscape of theological education have asked us questions about the various principles of CBTE. Very few have asked about the organizational practices.
We have been exploring some of the principles of competency-based theological education. Let’s continue our conversation by describing the six organizational practices that create fertile soil for CBTE. Taken together, these principles and practices are intended to create a platform on which a vast array of discipleship journeys can be built.
At the close of last week’s post, I wrote, “How then, one may ask, does the seminary ensure students develop and display mastery of each outcome with the level of specificity needed for a particular context?” It is a question I am commonly asked. Sometimes people are not always pleased with my answer because I usually respond with the question.
