Denominational Resources

Chicago Theological Seminary is an affiliated seminary of the United Church of Christ, but it is home to students from different religious traditions, including from over 20 Christian denominations. Students seeking ordination should be in conversation with their denomination's ordaining body in order to determine their unique requirements and plan an appropriate course for their education at Chicago Theological Seminary.  With the diverse resources and offerings of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (ACTS), students will be able to create an educational plan that meets their denominational needs. Below is a list of several denominations represented at CTS with available online resources concerning ordination.
