UD Received a Teaching the Bible Grant

A proposal for a Teaching the Bible Grant from the PC(USA) Office for Financial Aid titled “Increasing Engagement in Christian Studies” was recently awarded funding and will kick off in January.  The grant funds will be used to provide additional resources for Bible studies, expand small group opportunities for undergraduate students and faculty, revamping some Christian Studies undergraduate courses, and generally inviting more participation in studying the Bible.  The project will be a collaboration between seminary faculty and students, campus ministry, the religion department, undergraduate students, and the department of instructional design.

“My favorite part of this project is that it acknowledges how people grow in their interest for studying the Bible in a variety of ways – sometimes through organized classes for credit and sometimes through experiences talking in groups.  This will give us the chance to talk about how each type of opportunity can generate interest in the other and allow more undergraduate students and faculty to have conversations centered on learning about the Bible.”  - Jennifer Pattee, UD Instructional Design Specialist

The project will begin in January of 2018 and continue through December.  For questions or to share ideas about possible resources for this project, please contact Jennifer Pattee at
