NMC Summer School

NMC Summer School

Our Native Ministries Consortium Summer School is offered annually during two weeks in July. This is an opportunity for students who are often isolated from one another to gather, learn and worship together. It is also an opportunity for intensive course work for students in the Native Ministries Program. The Summer School serves people from a wide variety of educational backgrounds, with an international and largely Indigenous faculty.

Our array of courses offers a wide range of topics for a critical mind and a curious spirit. Be ready to embark on a journey of learning, healing and growth!

 

2017 NMC Summer School Program

Week 1: July 10 – 14
Week 2: July 17 – 21

Native Ministries Summer School is holistic and interdisciplinary. Courses examine sacred scripture, theology and philosophy through the lens of indigenous thought. Courses achieve this by examining social data, literary-oral tradition, the artistic cultural aspects of Indigenous spirituality.

STUDENT ORIENTATION
Week 1: July 10 @ 6PM
Week 2: July 17 @ 6PM
Mandatory for all non-indigenous students (Indigenous students are welcome).
