About Phillips

Phillips Theological Seminary is a graduate seminary, affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), dedicated to learning the way of Jesus in order to cultivate vital congregations, communities, conversations, and the public good. We are a community of teachers and learners seeking to be faithful to God through disciplined, reasoned, and reflective study of scripture, religious tradition, and human experience.

We exist primarily to serve the church's need for educated leaders, ordained and lay. Located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we offer a unique brand of theological education in this region of the country: the pairing of ecumenical, in-depth theological education with denominational formation involving partners in several denominations. In addition, we welcome students who are not pursuing ministerial degrees but who want to explore and deepen their faith by taking specific courses in our curriculum. Furthermore, as an ecumenically-oriented seminary, we employ faculty and staff and welcome students from over 20 denominations.

The Phillips community is comprised of 25 trustees, 110 current students seeking graduate credit plus another 42 who have taken courses recently for personal enrichment, approximately 1,700 living alumni/ae, about 800 donor individuals and supporting congregations annually, and a dedicated faculty (full-time, affiliate, and adjunct) and staff.
