Gateway Courses

Gateway Courses are a series of four courses designed especially for pastors called to Mennonite congregations who do not have Anabaptist background and training. Many pastors are asked to take these courses as an expectation with being licensed or ordained. The courses are offered by Eastern Mennonite University in collaboration with Mennonite Conferences in southeastern Pennsylvania and can be taken for graduate credit or for non-credit. One course will be offered each semester on a two-year cycle:

  • Bible Survey and Anabaptist Hermeneutics
  • Anabaptist Mission and Peace
  • Anabaptist Leadership, Polity and Effectiveness
  • Anabaptist History and Theology

Tuition: $432 per credit hour
Audit fee: $90 a credit hour.
