Formed in 2009, the congregational and ministry studies department aims to provide opportunities for classroom learning, research, apprenticeships, and conversations about professional ministry, in order to help students critically examine how every other major and program in the college contributes to the life of the church and its ministries. In addition, the department is a focal point for faculty scholarship and professional development in this field of study.
An organization committed to helping young people explore and respond to God’s call in their lives; offers fellowships for undergraduates considering careers in ministry and seminarians studying for the ministry; includes an array of helpful resources for the task of discerning a call to ministry.
The major accrediting body for seminaries and divinity schools in the United States; the webpage includes a useful directory of seminaries and divinity schools (which can be searched alphabetically, geographically, by denomination, or by degree programs offered).

While not its direct purpose, this site also provides insightful food for thought for students thinking about the possibility of a call to ministry--it helps to answer the question: What will a life of ministry look like?
