for baptismal living

Life-long, life-wide & life-deep learning for ALL the baptized

You don’t have to enroll in a degree program to enrich your faith.

As part of Bexley Seabury’s seminary-beyond-walls philosophy, we’ve launched Pathways to educate, form, and catalyze the Body of Christ to blaze new pathways for prophetic and pastoral service in response to God’s call.

While there is a logic and sequence to the courses and programs available, our courses, workshops, events, and activities are designed so you can choose the combination and order that best suit your interests and needs.

Sometimes you long for deeper instruction than your adult formation classes can provide. But a full seminary program isn’t right for you. Pathways makes seminary-created education and spiritual formation accessible to anyone with a desire to go deeper in their knowledge and faith.

Licensure &
Church-Wide Imperatives

These courses are designed to meet General Convention directives as well as licensure requirements defined by the Canons of the Episcopal Church. Those seeing licensure need to gain approval from their Bishop to ensure that licensure will be conferred.

of Practice

 Designed to support leaders in particular ministry roles, these host-facilitated Zoom-based gatherings enable guest to interact with guest presenters and engage in sustained, critical conversation about faith, leadership, and issues relevant to their roles.

Ministry Preparation, Licensure, & Church-Wide Imperatives

Ministry and Licensure Preparation:

Each of these courses are available for personal enrichment and ministerial preparation.  They also meet the requirement of the Canons of the Episcopal Church for licensing or recertification. Those who are interested in obtaining a license should contact their Bishop (or the Bishop’s designee) to gain approval BEFORE taking a course to ensure that licensure will be conferred upon completion. Bexley Seabury Seminary does not have authority to confer this license. Depending on your context, your Bishop may ask you to complete some supplementary material or course prerequisites.

Church-Wide Imperatives Defined by the General Convention of the Episcopal Church
