CPT Fellow Expectations and Standards

Membership in a CPT fellowship is a privilege reserved for pastors, scholars, and ministry leaders committed to the ongoing production of robust and relevant scholarship in ecclesial theology and related fields of study.

As such, CPT fellows are expected to meet and maintain biblical qualifications for church leadership as well as charitable Christian fellowship with other scholars and ministry colleagues.

The following resources are made available to help CPT fellows understand and maintain the requirements of membership in their fellowship:

  • CPT Statement of Standards for Christian Conduct

  • CPT Fellow Standards of Scholarship and Expectations

  • CPT Fellow Prospectus

  • Fees coming from church

  • Require writing every three years

  • Require one book review every year per Fellow

  • require yearly participation in some "platform" or "leadership" initiative (symposium paper, monograph, student group, local pastor cohort)

Host a Local Pastor Fellowship

Beginning in 2019 the CPT will sponsor local pastor cohorts. These cohorts will meet quarterly and be hosted by a CPT fellow at his or her church. The CPT will cover the cost of food, outside speakers, and reading materials for these cohorts. The organizing CPT fellow will also receive a $2,000 annual stipend from the CPT.
