We are Growing!

CST’s enrollment is at a 35-year high!

In the last three years, the number of students seeking their Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree more than doubled, spurred by the growth of Hybrid/Online programs.

Your Support is Essential!

The average CST graduate carries more than $44,000 in student loan debt. And these alumni/ae are servant leaders. In our churches, our mosques, our temples, at non-profits, and guiding social justice movements.

By contributing to the Annual Fund, you make scholarships possible. Your unrestricted dollars allow us to offer scholarships to 90% of our students and lighten the debt load that CST alumni/ae face.

Through your gifts You prepare future leaders to be agents of transformation and healing in churches, mosques, temples, local communities, schools, non-profit institutions, and the world at large.
