**To share this story: By Emily Huso On June 5-7, more than 35 representatives from Seventh-day Adventist institutions of higher education, the North American Division Ministerial Association, and the North Pacific Union Conference met by invitation at the Walla Walla University (WWU) campus in Washington for the North American Division Ministerial Conference. The conference was formed for the purpose of coordinating theological education throughout the NAD and has met twice previous to the event at WWU. “The North American Division Ministerial Association hosted meetings at Walla Walla University to build greater synergy with religion and theology chairs from Seventh-day Adventist colleges and universities about curriculum development centered around the seven core qualities for excellence in ministry,” said Ivan Williams, NAD Ministerial Association director. “We also met with ministerial directors who were a part of our internship committee, addressing all facets of professional development from the call of God through retirement.” This year, the group’s discussions focused on composing a standard set of student learning outcomes to be incorporated into all NAD theological programs. The group also discussed seminary education and the prospect of continuing education for ministers after ordination.
