What is Theocademy?

Theocademy is a way for Presbyterians to form their faith anytime, anywhere.

Drawing on the vast gifts of our denomination, Theocademy wants to provide members of the Presbyterian Church (USA) with the finest theological education they can get short of attending one of our 10 seminaries.

Currently, we are working on two sets of video lessons, one for use in New Members classes and a second for helping Ruling Elders and Deacons better understand the ministry they have been called to.


Trisha Tull is A. B. Rhodes Professor Emerita of Old Testament at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. She works in a variety of ways to help Christians draw nourishment from our deep spiritual roots and from the breadth of the created world, both cultural and natural. You may find her blog at http://inhabitingeden.org  . It features lively, ongoing conversations around the crucial relationships
among creator and creation.
