The Mission of Drew Theological School Center for Lifelong Learning is to:

  • Equip clergy and lay leaders to effectively address emerging and ongoing issues in ministry by providing relevant leadership education programs, including courses developed in partnership with Annual Conferences and agencies of The United Methodist Church.
  • Partner with Annual Conferences and local churches to provide alternative educational opportunities that embrace multiple learning styles and provide advanced theological education beyond the structure of degree programs by opening some graduate courses to non-degree participants.
  • Strengthen the spiritual lives of all people through deep Christian study and reflection that is characterized by a commitment to justice, ecumenism, and respect for the integrity of creation, and is supported by theology that is responsible to the complex social realities of our interconnected world.
