Title

Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico plays critical role in changing face of denomination

Description

Theological education in the PC(USA) is shifting to support and embrace diversity. The denomination is increasing its efforts to become more global as well as to reach Latin@ populations through the historic partnership signified by the presence of Rev. Dr. Doris J. García Rivera, president of the Seminario Evangélico de Puerto Rico/Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico (ESPR), at the 222nd General Assembly earlier this summer of 2016. Another example of theological education’s commitment to diversity and to training diverse leaders is the Programa de Certificado en Ministerio at Austin Seminary, which began in January 2016.
