HTOS Official Announcement: Dean of the Seminary - 11/29/2018 - 11/29/18
Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary invites applications for the position of the Dean of the Seminary, for a three-year term to begin on August 15, 2019, following the retirement of the current Dean, Archpriest Alexander F. C. Webster, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology - 2/22/2019 - 02/21/19
Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary invites applications for the position of an Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology for a two-year appointment, beginning September 1, 2019, with a possibility of renewal, depending on the results of an annual review.
Founded in 1948, Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary is an undergraduate- and graduate-level institution of higher education under the auspices of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR), committed to continuation of the theological and spiritual legacy of the Russian Orthodox Church and to the training of future pastors and lay leaders to serve the Russian Church Abroad in North America and Europe.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach to teach three of the four 3-credit Pastoral Theology courses (Priestly Vocation, Homiletics, and Parish Leadership—including Administration, Religious Education, Evangelism, and Humanitarian Service) and all four of the 1-credit Field Education Practica in the new HTOS Master of Divinity degree program, as well as the two-course sequence in Pastoral Theology and the two 1-credit Homiletics courses in the Bachelor of Theology degree program. The expected teaching load will be equivalent to 3 or 3 1/2 courses per semester. The appointed professor is expected to possess conceptual knowledge of and practical ministry in the various pastoral theology sub-disciplines listed above. Proficiency in Pastoral Counseling is not required for the position but would enhance an applicant’s candidacy. A completed Ph.D., Th.D., or Dr. Theol. degree in Pastoral Theology or one of the sub-disciplines is required. A candidate with a completed D.Min. degree in Pastoral Theology may be considered for the position, depending on the academic rigor of that graduate program.
The unique character of Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary as a pastoral academic institution requires deep familiarity with the Orthodox Christian tradition, and therefore the candidates for this position must be communicants in a canonical Orthodox Church and must support the mission of the Seminary.
Please direct all applications to: The Very Rev. Fr. Alexander F. C. Webster, Ph.D., Dean, Chairman of the Search Committee, by email address firstname.lastname@example.org or by the mailing address P.O. Box 36, Jordanville, NY 13361. Please submit your CV, statement of intent, graduate school transcripts, and three reference letters.
The review of applications will proceed as the applications are received. Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary is accredited by the Commissioner of Education and the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York with the Absolute Charter granted in 1962.
We've Exceeded the Goal! - 3/06/2019 - 03/06/19
On behalf of our seminarians, faculty, and administration, I would like to thank each and every donor for your contribution, no matter the amount, to our fall/winter fundraiser, which concluded on 2/28/19.
Because of your profound and unprecedented generosity, we have, with God's help, now raised over $136,000, and with a dedicated benefactor's generous match, up to $25,000, of every dollar over $100,000, this puts our total for the general fund at over $161,000 for this fundraiser. In addition, during this fall-winter fundraising season, we’ve raised an additional $19,100 designated for future scholarships, so our overall total now peaks at almost $181,000. This amount represents the most we have ever raised in any single campaign for our beloved Seminary.
Once again; may I express our deepest gratitude, and may the Good Lord bless you 100-fold for your generosity in supporting us and our very important mission here at Holy Trinity Seminary in Jordanville!
