Ministry Resource Center

The Ministry Resource Center, a part of the Divinity Library, endeavors to expand visions and meet faith needs through the life of congregations and agencies in communities, focusing on the practice of ministry and providing resources to faculty, graduates, congregations, and students, including those in internships. The center offers consultation related to ministries of social service agencies and congregations, the use of resources, and program planning. It maintains a media library of DVDs, CDs, and print resources on the practice of ministry ranging from social issues to congregational care to curriculum resources. 

The staff of the Ministry Resource Center helps individuals develop and implement ministries. We are here to:

  • Consult about ideas and issues in ministry
  • Guide you through resources for ministry programs, community outreach, and pastoral and congregational care issues
  • Provide workshops led by professionals in program ministries to meet you or your congregation’s particular needs
  • Connect you to print and audiovisual resources for all ages and occasions

The Ministry Resource Center offers a wide array of materials, most of which may be accessed through Orbis, the Yale University Library online catalog.

The Ministry Resource Center is located in the Yale Divinity School Library. We invite you to learn more about us in person, whether you simply want to browse our materials or have a chat. Bring your children, who can enjoy our games, books, puzzles, and costumes while you learn more. Enjoy previewing music CDs, DVDs on a variety of topics, audio lectures or even the Bible on CD.

It is not necessary to make an appointment, but if you would like to call ahead (203-432-5319) or email ( to let us know a subject you are interested in, we can get materials ready for you to explore.
