We have heard feedback that the $50 is a challenge for some full-time students; as such, moving forward, we would like to waive the tuition fee for full-time students who are candidates for ministry. For everyone else, the payment would be as usual.

 

Finally, in some of our earlier conversations, we had talked about equivalencies, and how to respond if people are involved in workshops and/or conferences that could be alternatives to the online racial justice training program. I am currently am in conversations with the Racial Justice & Gender Justice Advisory Committee, about involving members of that group in helping to offer advice about potential equivalencies, and we will know more after their conference call in early September. Once we have a proposed process in place, I will let you know.
