Are you considering submitting an application to Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry (STM)? From now until Friday, June 15th, the School of Theology and Ministry will pay your $55 fee when you apply.
Several UU students choose Seattle U for seminary (M.Div) or other graduate degree or certificate programs in religion and spirituality, and many Seattle area UU ministers are graduates of STM.
The Rev. Marian Stewart (Northlake UU Church, Kirkland, WA) serves as UU Denominational Formation Coordinator and the Rev. Dr. Barbara Wells ten Hove (Cedars UU Church, Bainbridge Island, WA) serves as UU Liturgical Consultant.
Local UU clergy who graduated from STM include the Revs. Bruce Davis (Evergreen UU Fellowship, Marysville, WA), Bill Graves (Tahoma UU Congregation, Tacoma, WA), Carmen McDowell (Cascade UU Fellowship, Wenatchee, WA), Peg Morgan (Westside UU Church, Seattle, WA) and Karen Taliesin (Chaplain, Seattle Children’s).
Many other PNWD clergy and lay leaders have participated in Seattle University’s Pastoral Leadership Program, which can articulate to a Doctorate in Ministry through STM’s partnership with the San Francisco Theological Union.
