CALL Announces Major Price Reduction

Fall 2024 promotional banner for CALL courses

The Center for Anglican Learning and Leadership (CALL) at Church Divinity School of the Pacific has long offered affordable online learning opportunities throughout the year. Now, these courses will be available for a rate $150 per registration—a permanent price reduction of nearly 40 percent. 

“We’re really excited to make CALL courses even more accessible to people seeking to deepen their faith, grow their knowledge, or add to their ministry toolkits,” said Dr. Jennifer Snow, director of extended learning and associate professor of practical theology.  

“Thousands of past participants have enriched their formation through participation in this program, and we hope this opportunity will further grow CALL’s contribution to the life of the Episcopal Church.” 

Each CALL class is designed for participation at students’ own pace and on their own time. Courses last seven weeks, each week a separate lesson. Continuing Education Units are offered at the rate of 2 CEUs per course.  

Students from across the Episcopal Church and beyond join experienced online instructors, many of them seminary professors, in creating a classroom environment of respect and mutual learning. Courses are open to anyone, lay or ordained, of any denomination or none. They are offered during fall, winter, and spring terms, each scheduled with the calendar rhythms of busy church leaders in mind. 

The Fall 2024 session runs September 9 through October 28. Registration for each of the courses listed below will open July 8. To receive course listings and registration info each term, sign up at and select “Center for Anglican Learning and Leadership (CALL) Updates.” 

Early and Medieval Christian Spirituality with the Rev. Daniel London, PhD 

In this course, students will learn the origins of Christian monastic, mendicant, and mystical spiritualities by immersing themselves in the pre-Reformation literature and spiritual practices of the Desert Fathers and Mothers, the Benedictines, the Cistercians, the Celtic Christians, the Franciscans, and the Medieval English Mystics. By doing so, students will recover spiritual nourishment and riches from early and medieval Christian traditions that feed some of today’s deepest religious hungers.

When approached with skill and grounded in Christ’s love, conflict is a healthy process through which we fully encounter our neighbor, we learn about ourselves, and we ultimately find unity amidst difference. In this course, students will learn concrete skills and tools that help keep conflict healthy and safe, as well as explore the spiritual practices that form the bedrock of this work.
