The Second Three Years Program (S3YP) offers continuing support for VTS graduates in ordained ministry. The program was developed as a result of research with newly ordained and experienced clergy. For M.Div., A.S., and Theo. alumni, we offer three additional years of training, mentorship, and support. We aid in setting additional learning goals and self-evaluation around competencies necessary for effective ministry. As new clergy, your first three years post-seminary are crucial. Please consult with your bishop and/or deployment officer about full participation in the S3YP as part of any hiring agreement.
Beginning with the Class of 2009, all graduates on the ordination track from the Master of Divinity program and the program in Anglican Studies are invited to participate in the S3YP.
