Summer Term: Deadline Extended for Pastors of Excellence Nominations
Again this summer, YDS will offer a summer term in cooperation with Berkeley Divinity School at Yale and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. Summer Term at Sterling Divinity Quadrangle offers clergy and practitioners, as well as church musicians and those with an interest in worship and the arts, a month-long series of short courses, in subject areas ranging from history and biblical scholarship to literature and the arts. A summer term web site containing up-to-date information on courses and registration is available at http://www.yale.edu/sdqsummerterm/
A limited number of "Pastor of Excellence" scholarships will be available to pastors wishing to participate in the Summer Term program. Candidates must be nominated by members of their congregations, who are asked to explain why their pastor should be considered for an award and how the pastor has made an influence on the congregation and community. Last summer, ten "Pastors of Excellence" were selected, each of whom received a $1,000 scholarship. Nomination forms are available on the summer term web site. The deadline for nominations, originally April 1, has been extended to April 15.
