Wondering what is offered through the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry, the joint theological school operated by the Diocese of Kansas and three surrounding Episcopal dioceses?  If so, consider attending the new student orientation.

Orientation will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 8 and conclude around noon on Sunday, July 9. It will take place at Upton Hall Conference Center, 833 SW Polk Street in Topeka, adjacent to the diocesan office.

The cost is $100 per person, which includes meals and overnight accommodations at Upton Hall on Friday and Saturday nights. BKSM offers classes for people in the official process toward ordination as a deacon or priest, as well as for licensed lay ministries (catechist, preacher, evangelist, pastoral leader). Classes also can be taken for personal enrichment.

The orientation is intended to give new or prospective students a clear sense of the academic expectations of the school, as well as the chance to experience the powerful community of worship, fellowship and spiritual formation. For more information click HERE.
