Land, Food, and Faith Formation: A Conversation with Jade Clark and Nathan Dorris from Memphis Theological Seminary
Memphis Theological Seminary is currently accepting applications for the Doctor of Ministry in Land, Food, and Faith Formation. This dynamic and innovative low-residency program is open to students who are passionate about the intersections of ministry with agricultural practices, food justice, care for the land, and the role of faith communities in both rural and urban settings.
Students in this program will explore the theological and ethical dimensions of land and its use, the role of food in our lives, and the ways faith communities both shape and are shaped by their relationship with land and food. This program will provide theological resources and practical models for the practice of ministry in faith communities which seek to relate more intentionally to the care of land, food, and all living creatures.
Instructors in this program--like Rev. Dr. Heber Brown, III and Nurya Love Parish--have been at the forefront of food justice and creation care.
The first two-week residency for the new cohort takes place in June 2020, and applications are currently being accepted until April 30.
