African American Leadership Initiative


With RUF at JSU, Redeemer PCA, Mission Mississippi, Voice of Calvary Ministries, and New Horizons, RTS Jackson provides a unique context for multi-ethnic, urban, and African American ministry.  Partnering with these ministries and more, the African American Leadership Initiative (AALI) will provide mentoring, modeling, fellowship, and scholarship for our students.

The Initiative

The African American Leadership Initiative is open to anyone, but particularly to full-time African American seminary students demonstrating leadership potential who are pursuing an MDIV or MA degree.  Members of AALI will learn how to apply the Gospel to the unique challenges and circumstances of ministry in a multi-ethnic, urban setting. 

Scholarship 
African American students who demonstrate a heart for ministry in African American, multi-ethnic, or urban contexts may apply for the 50% AALI Scholarship.  Normal Financial Aid Application and Policies apply.
