Foundations Judson Communities (FJC)

What is FJC?

FOUNDATIONS Judson Communities is a certificate level, theological education program sponsored by Central Baptist Theological Seminary aimed at pastors and church leaders originally from Burma that have been resettled in the USA. Church leaders with roots in Burma make dramatic cultural and lifestyle changes while leading congregations making similar adjustments. Many of these church leaders might not be fully prepared to meet the new situations they face in the US. The goal of the FJC program is to better equip church leaders to lead their congregations in the US by providing training in a language fully understood by those taking the course. Thus, FJC courses are taught in Karen (ကရင္), Burmese (ျမန္မာ), Kachin (ကခ်င္) or what ever language is best understood by those taking the class.
