The sweet spot for theological education is in the midst of a diverse community of local Christians, searching the Scriptures and the tradition and discerning the call of God as they seek to faithfully witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in their time and for their place.
Rev. Dr. Christopher B. James
Madison Learning Community is an initiative of University of Dubuque Theological Seminary offering seminary-level courses to Madison-area pastors, church leaders, and others eager to deepen ministry skills in a diverse Christian community committed to the local Church. Each semester we offer one course on Tuesday evenings, and deliberately build community among students that strengthens the local unity and witness of Christ's church.
Our first class, pictured here at their kick-off retreat, reflects our hopes for a learning community that embodies the beautiful diversity of God's people in Madison. It included students from 9 denominations, 11 unique churches, ranging in ages from 26 to 82 and half of whom are persons of color.
