Hello Dominick, I see that you have raised your hand. If you have questions regarding content please feel free to enter that into the Q&A. For any other questions you can add those to the chat here.
Dominick Oliver
01:06:32
No question.
Vanessa Lovelace
01:15:03
Jo Ann, we also saw a decline by students who enrolled in our debt reduction/match scholarship program.
Samuel Andri
01:15:58
Sorry for my ignorance: Does "educational debt"includes living costs too or just for tuition fees?
Samuel Andri
01:16:50
Thanks Jo Ann
Margaret Aymer
01:26:21
A lot of these are face-to-face and so many have been online.
Jo Ann Deasy, ATS
01:27:10
Christopher will do some comparisons of campus and online students in just a moment
Alexander Zell
01:29:06
Administer a parish/congregation was lowest or second to last lowest. If I understand this concept, as a whole we are not preparing our graduates to practically run a church. Would this be an accurate analysis of the data?
Jo Ann Deasy, ATS
01:31:39
I think that might be partially accurate. During the ECFFM Initiative we found that at some schools these administrative classes were offered, but students did not want to take them. I think it has to do with both values and offerings.
Margaret Aymer
01:32:41
What is "other vocation"
Andrew Hedinger
01:33:39
I find it interesting that "Pastoral Counseling" only shows up in health care/counselor. We have had MDiv students express more interest in pastoral counseling classes as part of their training, especially in the midst of the trauma of COVID.
Dawn Morton
01:34:02
agree Andrew
Jeremy Fulda
01:34:23
Is there any data that separates students in full time vocational ministry while in school and those not?
Magdoleen Meleka
01:38:05
That helps. Thanks
Christopher The (he/him), ATS
01:40:05
Thanks, Jo Ann. Sorry, Alexander, that I missed your comment.
Katherine Horvath
01:45:20
What about having a general chaplaincy category, since there is more than just health care: e.g. prison, military, hospice, law enforcement, sports etc.?
Alexander Zell
01:45:46
Great job, Chris! Jo Ann addressed my question in the chat. I love analyzing data so I really appreciate what you are doing!
Andrew Beaty
01:45:57
This is really interesting that Congregational/Parish ministry rates as the top option while the pastoral skills in previous slides were listed as areas where graduates felt the least prepared.
Rebekah Buchterkirchen
01:47:05
Have you found any insights broken down by gender demographics when it comes to students plans after graduation? For example, at our school, we have seen fewer female students plan to serve in a church setting than their male counterparts.
Jeremy Fulda
01:49:24
Do you have any data about students planning to go into bi-vocational ministry after graduation?
Andy Keck
01:50:17
It's interesting that the percentage was nearly equal for folks interested in congregational/parish MA Professional and MA Academic. I wonder if the practicum is less relevant for folks already engaged in ministry and so they go the academic MA route.
Margaret Aymer
01:59:16
Do you capture MA grads who plan to get further study?
Margaret Aymer
02:11:47
Did you say this entire report is available?
Diana Henry
02:11:54
Will the powerpoint be shared or just the video?
Diana Henry
02:12:12
thanks!
Amanda Onapito

Jo Ann Deasy, ATS

I believe the powerpoint will be shared as well.
