In partnership with the Presbytery of the Alleghenies, Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pa., has developed a Presbyterian Track for its Master of Divinity curriculum.
EPC Pastor Rich Herbster, Trinity’s Director of Presbyterian Studies, said the school has been training Presbyterians for ministry for many years. “Now we are able to improve on an already excellent experience,” he noted. “Those preparing for ministry who are theologically Reformed and evangelical will benefit tremendously from this new partnership.” Herbster also serves as Pastor of Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church in Aliquippa, Pa.
Justyn Terry, Trinity’s Dean and President, expressed excitement about the partnership. “We have many friends and alumni in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, and look forward to the opportunity to train future pastors for this and other Presbyterian denominations.”
Founded in 1976, the Pittsburgh-area Trinity School for Ministry is an evangelical seminary in the Anglican tradition.
The Presbytery of the Alleghenies covers parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and New York. Since its inception in 2011, the presbytery has nearly tripled in size and now has more than 60 congregations and approximately 16,000 members.
