Dr. Ann B. McClenahan
The Boston Theological Interreligious (BTI) Consortium is an association of eleven university divinity schools, schools of theology, and seminaries in the Greater Boston area and Hartford, CT. A 501(c)3 organization, it is one of the oldest and largest theological consortia in the world. BTI Consortium schools represent Evangelical, Greek Orthodox, Jewish, Islamic, Methodist, nondenominational, nonsectarian, and Roman Catholic traditions. Our purpose is to enrich each school’s mission, advance excellence in theological education, and build interreligious community to cultivate visionary religious leadership for our pluralistic world.
Opportunities for Student Involvement:
We are looking for a master’s program candidate to work with the Executive Director and Graduate Assistant on the development and implementation of new programs and initiatives to support the BTI’s mission. The student will have considerable freedom in designing their program. Opportunities exist to work on coordinating the annual student-led conference, our website, coordinating with student associations at the eleven member schools, supporting intra-BTI student programs and affinity groups, re-launching lifelong learning initiatives, and expanding our social media presence. The student will also be introduced to the various functions of a small non-profit organization.
The BTI is a fully remote organization. We operate a small office at Gordon-Conwell Theological School (South Hamilton, MA) that houses our cross-registration server, but all work is done remotely. That said, travel to various BTI member schools throughout the school year would be required for meetings, events, and conferences (as student course schedule permits).
Arts of Ministry Competencies Offered:
- Administration and Program Development
- Public Leadership, Community Organizing, and Planning
The BTI Executive Director (Stephanie C. Edwards, MSW, PhD) will supervise the intern in weekly meetings. The meetings will be designed to promote the candidate’s professional development as a reflective practitioner and to work collaboratively on the planning and implementation of BTI programs and communications.
