Word of Witness: Joe Poppino
Current student Joe Poppino knew that he was called to a life of service in ministry. What he didn't expect was the journey he would take and challenges he would face. He's now in the master of divinity program at North Park Theological Seminary, and recently shared this testimony about his experiences.
North Park Theological Seminary reflects the mission of the Evangelical Covenant Church: "more disciples, among more populations, in a more caring and just world." We affirm women and men in leadership and we seek to be a community that makes a difference in the church and in the world.
Academic studies are organized into five major fields: Bible, history, theology, ministry, and spiritual formation. Studies in each of these fields are designed to acquaint students with the ideas, materials, and resources that are foundational for an informed, dedicated, and relevant ministry.
North Park's distinctive field education provides further context to studies, helping students develop maturity and experience as you strengthen a sense of Christian vocation.
Each Seminarian benefits daily from generous scholarship funding provided by churches, alumni, and other friends of North Park Theological Seminary. Gifts of any size invest in the future of our denomination, our churches, and the individuals and families they serve.
