In his newest blog post, Phillips Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes, "It is not just good law that leaders of religious organizations, speaking for their organizations, are forbidden to endorse candidates.

Phillips Theological Seminary offers Christian graduate theological education
in service of intelligent, just, and compassionate religious and civic communities. We welcome
students to a safe space for truth-seeking conversations about the Bible, Jesus, and faithful living.
Courses available on campus and online for certificate, diploma, MDiv, MAMC, MASJ, & MTS
