The PAS Place

The Cumberland Presbyterian Church has a Unique path into the Ordained Ministry, the Program of Alternate Studies, or PAS. The PAS Program allows individuals who, for whatever reason, may receive the call to ministry later in life. These individuals, young and old, men and women, are allowed, through the support of their local presbyteries, and the Denomination, to receive instruction from world class professors, most of whom are on the faculty at Memphis Theological Seminary. They usually attend classes each summer at Bethel University in McKenzie, TN, meeting with their instructors, receiving their assignments, and then completing homework assignments throughout the year.

Students have completed the coursework in as little as 2 or 3 years, or longer, like 7 years. The program has great flexibility built in, so that in the best traditions of a "tent-making" ministry, the students can work their full-time jobs, attend summer or local classes, and then, finally, serve their local home congregations, as an ordained minister. This outreach program has sustained the church in a time where churches might otherwise go without a pastor.
