Abstract
Given the current health crisis in the United States (in which the Church plays a part), this project identifies the main health issues impacting the masters-level degree students at Columbia Theological Seminary (Decatur, Georgia), while providing valuable insight into what the students believe the Church's role is in formulating effective theological and practical approaches to these various health issues. This project was conducted through an anonymous, online questionnaire and in-depth interviews with self-selected students. It concludes by offering five suggestions for what the author believes would have the greatest impact on improving the health and wellbeing of those who work and study in theological institutions so as to improve not only the health of future seminarians, but also as a way of improving the health of our current clergy, congregations, and beyond.
