PROTOCOLS FOR 2018-2019 GRANTS MADE BY THE SEMINARY CONSULTATION ON MISSION (SCOM)

OVERVIEW

SCOM’s Purpose

The Seminary Consultation on Mission (SCOM) is a collaborative venture, formed under the auspices of the Council of Episcopal Seminary Deans, Inc., to strengthen the educational resources for national and international mission in the accredited seminaries of the Episcopal Church. The Consultation is funded largely through a trust funded by Venture in Mission (VIM), the church-wide capital campaign of the 1970s-80s. The purpose of the fund is to develop and deepen a global perspective in seminary life and curricula and thereby help renew and extend effective commitment to mission, both foreign and domestic, throughout the Church.  Read more...
