The Theological Education for Emerging Ministries [TEEM] certificate program is a non-residential and contextual-educational arm of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary aimed at preparing women and men for ordained ministry in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America [ELCA].

Students study at home with local pastors/mentors, while doing the ministry in a congregation. Students meet together on campus three times a year with their professors. The curriculum of this program generally consists of 16 courses, and 5 workshops, plus internship and Clinical Pastoral Education [CPE]. Depending on the student’s circumstances, internship and CPE could be completed while pursuing the academic components of the curriculum.
