Contextualized Learning

The goal of contextualized learning at Central Baptist Theological Seminary is to help students connect the information that they learn in a classroom setting to the realities of ministry and service in the 21st Century. A simpler way of saying this is contextualized learning seeks to help students “live what they learn.”

Whether a student desires to serve a body of believers within a traditional church setting or serve the urban poor through a nonprofit social service agency or a ministry or business, contextualized learning seeks to help students and alumni bridge the divide between theory and reality.

How can the contextualized learning staff at Central help you?
• If you are a student at Central, we can help you identify an internship opportunity where you will earn academic credit.
• If you are an alumnus of Central, we can help you locate relevant full or part-time ministry opportunities.
• If you are a member of an organization that is seeking qualified applicants for a staff or ministry vacancy, we can connect you with capable people to fill your needs.
