    Dear Friends,

    I know many of you are looking at graduate programs and all of you want to be fully-funded.

    My name is Aidan Smith and I am the new Director of Recruitment at Trinity School for Ministry. I wanted to inform you that every year TSM is able to award full-tuition scholarships to students who study full-time at our residential campus in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. In fact, last year 100% of our residential, full-time campus received this benefit. For the fall 2016 semester, there are still slots available. If you are interested in applying, it is not too late!

    TSM applications can be found at the following link: https://www.tsm.edu/admissions. We offer a number of fully accredited degrees: Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Religion, and Master of Sacred Theology. TSM will be accepting applications until the middle of July, so there is still time for you to join us for the fall term if you get accepted.

    Please feel free to contact me whenever is convenient! Our admissions office number is 724-266-3838 or we can be reached at [email protected].


    Trinity School for Ministry is an evangelical seminary in the Anglican tradition. In this fractured world, we desire to be a global center for Christian formation, producing outstanding leaders who can plant, renew, and grow churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ. To this end we are forming Christian leaders for mission.

    well.....this is a distance learning forum, but ok.

    Unless I'm wrong, the full name of the school is Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry? FYI this college is not regionally accredited.

    from the site:
    "Spiritual Qualifications
    Conversion and call: the ability to articulate a commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Applicants must demonstrate a sense of call to full-time Christian leadership and gifts that would qualify them either for the ordained or lay ministry.

    Signs of Growth: a life, which evinces some signs of the characteristics, enumerated by our founding dean, Bishop Stanway, at the School's inception. The Bishop said he hoped that Trinity's graduates might be people who are:
    •unashamed of the Gospel of Christ,
    •people of prayer,
    •people liberated in the biblical sense,
    •seekers after holiness,
    •persons who have compassion for the poor and needy,
    •alive in God's Spirit, and
    •gripped with a sense of the privilege of being called to God's work.

    Galatians 5:22-23 also lists certain marks which the Committee would seek to find in applicants to the School. Likewise, I Corinthians 6:9-11 indicates the turning away from sin by the power of the Holy Spirit that we would see reflected in the life of the community.

    Disciplines of the Christian Life: keeping a regular quiet time and worshipping regularly in a Christian body.

    Orderly Life: evidence of responsibility in the area of family and personal relations, including finances and physical health. Whether single, divorced, married, remarried, or widowed, there will be evidence of stable commitment to the sanctity of the marriage covenant between a man and a woman, and abstinence in the single state."
