Milligan College (TN) seeks a tenure-track professor to join the faculty of Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan beginning in the fall of 2016. A terminal degree in theological education or closely related field is required. Supervised practice in ministry is integral to the mission of Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan to prepare students for ministry. The Seminary seeks a colleague to direct its Supervised Ministry Experience program (SME) and to teach in the area of Christian Ministries. A successful candidate will demonstrate expertise in mentoring and counseling student interns in regard to the SME Program and other aspects of field education, supervising the administration of the procedures required by the SME program, experience in congregational ministry, and the capacity to teach at the graduate level, with the potential for some duties with undergraduate students.
This person will work closely with supervisors from local, regional, churches and ministries and the broader constituency of Milligan, as well as colleagues in the Christian Ministries Area to develop both field- and classroom-based educational opportunities. Depending upon the area of expertise, the person will also have the opportunity to teach students in more focused courses within the Ministries Area for both masters-level and Doctor of Ministry degrees. In addition, she or he may serve as the Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program.
