Pastoral Core


The Master's Seminary Spokane Pastoral Core offers classes that are immediately useful in current pastoral ministry.

The TMS classes for the Pastoral Core are a subset of the Masters of Divinity (M.Div.) program. In addition, two workshops will be given during the two years, dealing with the mission and shepherding of the Church. In order to complete the Pastoral Core, apply for the M.Div. program with the Master’s Seminary at the Spokane Distance Location.
