In the School of Theology and Ministry, you will find outstanding professional faculty, each one a committed Christ-follower. Most have pastoral or missionary experience as well as excellent graduate training. Each of us willingly submits to the authority of God's Word, both in our teaching and personal lives, and all have a high respect for the Church. We love working with students and are happy to mentor and counsel. As a large faculty (18 full time), we are able to offer many courses from many perspectives.
