The MICAH Project

Virtual, Online

Enrollment is CLOSED for Fall Semester

The Micah Project creates a virtual space for students to form a community of peers that focuses on helping them to thrive, not just survive.  The last year and a half have proven to be one of the most difficult times in recent memory in our lives, the lives of our families, and the life of our churches and communities. We have struggled to survive. We at Ashland Theological Seminary believe that we must, not only maintain, but nurture the growth of our core values of Community and Spiritual Formation so that we can thrive and experience the abundant life that Jesus spoke about (John 10:10).

Our students and alumni tell us that some of their richest experiences during seminary are their encounters outside of the classroom among their peers. The Micah Project was created to help our students thrive right now… while they are a part of the seminary community.

As a member of The Micah Project community you will attend a virtual, bi-weekly cohort session that fits your schedule (usually held the 2nd and 4th weeks of each month).

The goals of the program (based on Micah 6:8) will be:

  • Do Justice: a deepening self-awareness and spiritual well-being for our students to be better equipped to make an impact in our world.
  • Love Mercy: Building a virtual space to facilitate a more meaningful connection with fellow students in the seminary community and to serve others.
  • Walk humbly with God: Creating a safe place for students to share both the joys and challenges of their journey, as they seek to grow in their relationship with Christ and others.
  • Walking alongside an experienced person in ministry who will be there to serve as a mentor.

We are excited at the possibilities that this opportunity will bring to our Seminary community and to you as a seminary student.
