Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, through the World Mission Initiative, will offer a certificate program in World Christian Discipleship. The program—designed for recent university graduates who are interested in discerning and preparing for Christian vocation—offers a monastic missional encounter. The WCD allows young adults to discern and prepare for Christian vocation, regardless of occupation (pastor, church planter, lawyer, teacher, missionary, etc.). The program is non- traditional and experiential so students will live a simple life, they will live in community, and they will serve the East End community and churches in Pittsburgh while reflecting on Scripture and great interpreters of the faith. The community of about 12 will be a diverse ethnic community from across the nation, committed to living according to a religious rule, accountable to one another, while exploring the global needs of the Church.
