Statement of Inclusivity
As ETS students, staff, and faculty who come together in a community of learning we believe that God calls us as people of faith to be accepting of all people. We practice this inclusiveness in many ways, but as an academic community we particularly embrace all persons, regardless of race, gender, creed, sexual orientation, or age, who exhibit the necessary academic skills for leadership training to serve the church in its many manifestations.
Further inspired by the life of Jesus Christ and the overcoming of his violent death by God’s mercy, we believe that God calls each of us into relationship and specific ministry. As a community we understand ourselves to be enriched by the diversity of persons who come to us to discern the specific nature of ministry and to learn effective skills in carrying out that ministry in today’s world.
