The Center for Ministry Studies (CMS) is dedicated to encouraging life-long Christian commitment in the context of the vibrant liberal arts learning community which is Hope College.

Our work is characterized by:

  • Biblical and Theological Formation: Cultivation of a biblical and theological understanding of life and ministry.

  • Church Involvement: Significant connection with the historic, local, and global Church.

  • Vocational Discernment: The exploration of callings in the context of Christian learning communities.

  • Cultural Engagement: Discerning engagement with culture through faithful reflection and action.

Informed by these core commitments, CMS provides programming and resources for students, faculty, practitioners, and congregations.
