School of Ministry & Christian Thought

Depth in Christ. Mature understanding. Effective ministry.

These are the ends that we pursue. We are more than an academic program – we are driven by our passionate love for God and our neighbor. We are a community of individuals seeking God together. We are a place of study, conversation, and questions. Our faculty is committed to nurturing the calling of God in the lives of our students.

Most importantly, we seek to support men and women who are spiritually equipped, integrating the foundation of biblical truth into our curriculum. Join us in pursuing the highest calling that there is: to know God and to make Him known to others.
