School of Theology & Christian Ministry

School of Theology & Christian Ministry Mission

The mission of the Anderson University School of Theology is to form women and men for the ministry of biblical reconciliation.


Our Commitment to the Mission of the Anderson University School of Theology

The faculty and staff of the seminary are committed to being a community where biblical faith, academic integrity, Christian spirituality, love for persons, and a responsible relation with the created order and all humankind is both believed and practiced.

To this end, the School of Theology is sensitive to the need for facilitating the spiritual growth of the seminarian. It values spiritual formation as a central integration point of preparation for ministry. This integration complements the academic disciplines with a responsiveness to the divine presence of the Lord in word and deed. Students and faculty are encouraged to share together in the community life of faith through chapel attendance, small prayer groups, spiritual formation groups, and personal meditation. Active participation in the life of a local congregation is also highly desirable.
