Applications are now being accepted for YTI’s inaugural Master of Divinity session, set to begin in August 2017 in Bozeman.
The residential M.Div. degree at Yellowstone Theological Institute was crafted as an answer to the difficulty of applying what is learned in the classroom to what is practical and necessary in life and ministry. The goal of YTI’s program is for the student to not simply earn his or her Master of Divinity degree, but to be a master of divinity and have the practical knowledge and skills to move forward in ministry.
Students in YTI’s three-year program engage in four tracks: texts (biblical studies, languages), faith and life (theology, ethics, spirituality), world and culture (world religions, cultures), and practicum (worship, pastoral care and counseling, leadership, communication: teaching and preaching). Though separate, these tracks are woven together by real life ministry practiced by students on campus in the cafés, garden, and fields of YTI’s public grounds, as well as off campus in churches, community centers, hospitals, and nursing homes.
