The Seminary of the Christian Community in North America offers a complete priest-training program.

The first year of the study gives students who are interested in becoming priests the opportunity to get to know the Christian Community; it is also open to those who are not considering entering the priesthood. Study-topics include the Old and New Testaments and the Greek language; the nature of the seven sacraments; anthroposophy and its theory of knowledge; and the arts, including eurythmy and speech-formation. To supplement these ongoing classes, guest-teachers give weeklong courses on related subjects.

In the second year of training, the focus is directed more specifically to topics and skills that are needed for the vocation of a priest, such as theology, including Christology; religious instruction; composing sermons; and the organizational structure of the Christian Community

During the third year, students take up a practicum in a congregation. The final half-year of the priest training consists of preparation for ordination. The question of the ordination of each candidate is ultimately decided by the Circle of Seven, the group of priests responsible for the worldwide administration of the Christian Community.

Open Courses

In addition to providing training for the vocation of priest, the Seminary offers Orientation Courses and Open Courses. The programs include the daily celebration of the Act of Consecration of Man, some shared meals, Gospel Study, workshops, and lectures.

Opportunities for Young Adults
