The Ethnic Immigrant Institute of Theology (EIIT) will be welcoming a new EIIT class in September, and students are invited to apply.
The EIIT is a distance-education program based at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, that’s designed to prepare immigrants as pastors and deaconesses.
Those who are enrolled in the program work from their homes, taking online courses taught by the same professors who teach the seminary’s M. Div courses. Students also have mentors who encourage them, as well as opportunities to discuss what they are learning with professors and fellow students.
Up to 30 registrants will be accepted into the program. Deadline for registrations is April 30.
Those who are interested in enrolling will need to complete the Leadership Advancement Process, a Christian doctrine exam, and exams on the Old and New Testaments.
