Philosophy on Residence Life

McCormick Theological Seminary seeks to develop capacities in persons, through the combination of academic study, experiential learning, and spiritual community, which will enable them to be leaders with global, ecumenical, and interfaith perspective and to be effective in their practice of ministry to specific contexts.  The Seminary Residence Life Program seeks to serve as one of several Seminary support services for you while you prepare for ministry and pursue your seminary education.

Members of the McCormick Seminary Residential Community are characterized by diversity of national and ethnic origin, language, age, prior vocational experience, denomination, gender and sexual orientation.  Members of the community hold different understandings of Jesus Christ and the nature of the ministry and mission of the church.  Residents have the opportunity to become active participants with this diverse group in the creation of an environment that encourages and supports persons in their efforts to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with God.
