Academics

Our faculty offer more than excellence in teaching and research. They are also persons who value the church and work to insure that courageous and talented persons are made ready for ministry in both congregational and non-congregational settings.

A Message from the Dean

Welcome to Academic Affairs! Our goal is to keep our curriculum relevant to the needs of the church, the academy, and the world. We are proud of the ethnic, racial, gender, and international diversity of our faculty and student body. We are committed to retaining this diversity and multicultural integration in our learning both in and out of the classroom.

Academic Affairs welcomes your interest and we encourage you to be in contact with our office as you choose a school for theological education and preparation for various forms of ministry. May God bless you in this most exciting journey into theological education!
