Programme (ETE), 150 seminarians and young theologians from all regions of
the world and all Christian backgrounds will have the opportunity to be part
of the Global Ecumenical Theological Institute, an intensive, two-week
theological program. This exciting educational opportunity will take place
October 25 – November 9, 2013 in

of life, lead us to justice and peace.”
The curriculum of the GETI will focus on the future of ecumenism and the

seven clusters of theological institutions are offering a course during the
Fall term of the academic year 2013-2014 which will include attending the
GETI in South Korea.
Space is very limited, as each cluster can only accept three or four
students. Through the seven clusters, a total of 25 advanced students of
theology will be selected to represent
at the Global Ecumenical Theological Institute. Each of these 25 spots is
fully funded (up to $3,000) through the generosity of the Luce Foundation.
Using the attached application, interested applicants may
apply to the cluster through which they would be able to take the course.
