Kendall Vanderslice reports at Christianity Today on the emergence of ‘Farminaries,’ where where food and farming play a crucial process in the formation of the church’s ministers.
Throughout his time in seminary, [Nate] Stucky had dreamed of teaching theology on a farm—or a “farminary,” his colleagues joked. Intrigued by this vision, [Princeton Theological Seminary] President M. Craig Barnes began to explore rumors that the seminary owned a nearby piece of empty property. The seminary purchased the plot in 2010 from a friend of the school, hoping that one day the property could somehow contribute to the mission. For four years, it remained nothing more than an asset on a spreadsheet. As Barnes later discovered, the 21-acre field was already zoned for agriculture, and Princeton’s Farminary Program was born.

Reverend Nurya Love Parish recently created a Christian Food Movement guide listing food-based ministries, conferences, books, blogs, and additional resources. In order to keep up with the movement, she turned the guide into a website that now serves as the primary resource connecting Christians concerned about food and faith.
