Ministerial Formation Certification Agency

January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Ministerial Formation Certification Agency is the Topic for the Fourth Theological Education Colloquy

The Reformed Church Center’s ongoing Understanding Theological Education in the RCA colloquies reflect on what theological education has been in the RCA and what it could be. The fourth session, on Tuesday, January 19, at 12:00 noon will consider the work of the Ministerial Formation Certification Agency (MFCA), the agency with the slightly different acronym and the same name that came before it, and the Theological Education Agency which came before that and started thirty-five years ago. Leading us through this consideration will be the man who arguably knows the MFCA better than anyone else in the church.

Cornelis (Cor) Kors is a General Synod Professor and the Executive Director Emeritus of the Ministerial Formation Certification Agency (MFCA). Cor has served as the Director of the MFCA and Assistant Professor on the faculty of Fuller Theological Seminary for twenty-nine years. Prior to that, he served for seven years as the Dean of Students at Redeemer University in Ancaster, Ontario, Canada, and five years as the Director of Counseling at Central College in Pella, Iowa. He has MDiv and MA degrees from New Brunswick Theological Seminary (NBTS) and a DMin from Fuller Theological Seminary.

We will begin our session with a presentation by Dr. Kors, followed by questions and discussion, all wrapping up by abut 1:00 pm.
