Advanced Latino/a Theological Education

ALTE students engage in bilingual discussion

One of SCUPE’s newest programs has hit the ground running with great success!  In the past year and a half, ALTE has established itself as a premiere program for Latino/a Theological Education in America.

Immigration Theology and Changing Demographics

Immigration Theology and Changing Demographics class

ALTE is a program that seeks to assist Latin@ church leaders in the United States (with a focus on three states: Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana) in their theological preparations as they work to meet the diversity of challenges faced by the church and community.  ALTE’s curriculum is developed from a Latin@ perspective and is taught in the community by nationally known bilingual instructors, such as Dr. Daniel Rodriguez-Diaz, Dr. Samuel Solivan, and others.

In addition to the excellent classes which are a part of its curriculum, ALTE also hosts a slew of important workshops throughout the year.  This August, ALTE is hosting a workshop in Elkhart, IN in conjunction with the Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary.  The workshop is entitled “Christian Education in the Latino/a Church”/“Educación Cristiana en la Iglesia Latino/a” and will be taught by AMBS professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling Daniel S. Schipani.
