Dayton, OH (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Two gatherings of United Theological Seminary students brought more than 450 students to Dayton during the month of August.
From August 6 to August 17, United hosted more than 100 students at its August FLEX Residency Weeks. Students took intensive courses, preached sermons, attended community worship and built relationships with other students and faculty to complete the face-to-face portions of their degrees.
United’s Flexible Residency Hybrid Master of Divinity is a program designed for students in regions not readily served by a local seminary community and offers a hybrid model of distance theological education that provides flexibility, while allowing the student to complete one-third of the degree in residence as required for United Methodist ordination.

From August 20-24, United hosted approximately 350 Doctor of Ministry students at the school’s August Doctor of Ministry Intensive. Presenters for worship and plenaries focused on the theme "Preaching for Growth and Renewal" and featured speakers included Dr. Cynthia Hale, Dr. William Curtis, Dr. Bill Lyle, and Dr. Joel Gregory.
