Seminaries

Christianity and Islam are the two largest religions in the world making up over half of the global population. Christians and Muslims coexist in nearly every country of the world. Christian leaders must be well equipped to lead their congregations in appropriate relations with their Muslim neighbors.

The Association of Theological Schools (ATS), the accrediting agency for 270 Mainline Protestant Seminaries in the US has recently added interfaith competency as a requirement for accreditation of Master of Divinity programs.

MDiv education shall engage students with the global character of the church as well as ministry in the multifaith and multicultural context of contemporary society. This should include attention to the wide diversity of religious traditions present in potential ministry settings. (ATS Educational and Degree Program Standards, p. G 40).

In partnership with the seminaries listed below Al Amana Centre provides intensive courses in Christian-Muslim relations, Scriptural Reasoning and dialogue. If your seminary or higher education institution would like to partner with Al Amana Centre, please contact us at info@alamanacentre.org
