Masters Student Council

The Masters Student Council of McCormick Welcomes you!

The Student Council at McCormick is a student organization seeking to serve the Masters level students and their families of McCormick Theological seminary through representation, communication, advocacy, and nurture. General concerns and questions can be sent to studentcouncil@go.mccormick.edu

What We Do
The purpose of the Student Council is to:

Facilitate timely communication among students, faculty, administration, and the Board of Trustees; Foster open communication and mutual respect among various interest groups of the McCormick community; Respond to and serve as an advocate for needs and concerns of students; Encourage and enable participation of students in the life of the whole community, providing opportunities for nurture, growth, renewal, fellowship, and connectedness among students and their families.

The Masters Student Council also seeks to provide opportunities for future church leaders to discuss styles and skills with those who have valuable knowledge of Church and Faith-Based Organization leadership.  Student council is a chance to practice some of the skills we learn in seminary before we are out on our own in ministry.

Council Meetings and Events

Student Council wants to see as many McCormick students at our meetings as possible.  Everyone is Welcome! This year we are going to change some things to make that happen. Our meetings will be based on the Open Table discussion model...more of a gathering than a meeting, more driven by discussion than an agenda, more about learning and equipping than action items and to do lists. Plus FREE DINNER!!! These gatherings take place in the Buchanan Lounge from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Watch for future meeting dates in your emails. We will talk about how to be a leader here at McCormick as well as how to be a leader in the changing and exciting church we will minister in after seminary.

Monthly Meetings
When possible, the Council meets the first Thursday of every month from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Yearly Events
Each year the Student Council plans events that provide fellowship opportunities. Annual events include a Fall Retreat, an Advent Dinner in December as well as our school year-end celebration, "Feast Of Fools." More detailed information will be posted in the Herald and e-mailed to students as events approach.
