A Welcoming Community
A crucial component of theological education is the experience of shared life and faith. At the McAfee School of Theology, the faculty and staff are committed to the practice of Christian community and encourage all students to enter as fully as possible into this community of faith.
A vital part of the McAfee community is a group of students elected to act as liaisons between the student body and the faculty. The Student Advocacy and Leadership Team (SALT) sponsors student forums at which students are given the opportunity to voice concerns and suggestions that will be presented to the faculty. In addition, SALT organizes gatherings, service opportunities, and fellowships that allow students to enjoy spending time together in an informal atmosphere.
Beginning with first-year classes on spiritual formation, students are invited into the experience of shared relationships, support, and prayer. The experience of being a community is nourished and encouraged in many ways, with opportunities for worship, play, shared meals, and ongoing groups. Toward this end, the faculty is committed to being accessible to students.
The McAfee community worships together on a weekly basis. The services are student-planned and, often, student-led. Preaching guests include students, alumni, faculty members, and other area ministers.
One of the wonderful things about McAfee is our tight-knit, welcoming community. To preserve that spirit and culture, we encourage all our prospective students to visit campus as a part of the application process. This allows us to get to know you and your calling better and gives you the chance to experience the many opportunities McAfee has to offer.
