Gateway Seminary has announced a new educational partnership with the Boston School of Ministry in Boston, Massachusetts.
“This partnership will create new opportunities for ministry leadership training in the Boston area. We are grateful this local initiative wants their training connected to a seminary program,” said Jeff Iorg, president of Gateway Seminary.
Kevin Scott, director of the Boston School of Ministry, said the school is focused on providing biblical training for day-to-day ministry work. He is also a Boston-based church planter and entrepreneur, having planted Church at the Well in 2011 and launching The Well Coffee House in 2014.
Reaching urban settings
“Urban settings will be most effectively reached with the gospel when Christ followers engage in everyday mission,” Scott said. “We want to partner with the local church to provide quality ministry training to anyone who desires it.”
The BSM will be located in the heart of downtown Boston in order to provide an effective contextualized training platform and accessibility from the Greater Boston area.
Through the partnership, students of a variety of educational backgrounds will be able to join together for training. Online students in a master’s program will have the opportunity to meet together for voluntary fellowship and study opportunities. Gateway’s DMin program will offer Boston-area cohorts for local ministers. Additionally, the BSM will host an ADVANCE Center, a local training location that provides pre-baccalaureate certificates and diplomas in a contextualized setting.
“Partnerships like this are very important to us,” said Adam Groza, vice president of enrollment and student services at Gateway Seminary. “Partners like the BSM are critical in our shared mission of reaching the lost by preparing the next generation of ministry leaders.”
