Where there’s a will, there’s a way.  Without a will, there’s almost no way. By remembering CDSP in your will or estate plan you ensure a legacy to prepare future leaders of the Church. Some ways of making a gift to CDSP may provide you with generous and dependable lifetime income. Those who remember CDSP in their will or estate plans are honored as members of the George and Augusta Gibbs Society and receive invitations to special events at CDSP. June is “Wills Month”
Welcome to CDSP Orientation. We hope your week is helpful, fun, informative and comfortable. Our greatest goal for this time together is to give you enough of the basics to navigate your first weeks here and begin to build a renewing sense of community for your class, and within the school. As we draw that circle, know that your partners, spouses and families are integral to that community.
Your first year is an opportunity to "church shop." Once Field Education begins for M.Div. students (most often in the second year), seminarians are usually expected to be with that congregation on Sunday. We encourage you to sample all the different churches and rich liturgical experiences in the area. If you have a family, this allows time to find a welcoming place, regardless of where Field Ed takes the seminarian (Some families go with their student, other families stay with a different congregation for their entire CDSP experience.)
