“PTS equipped me to answer God’s call, academically and spiritually.
Everyone, faculty as well as students, places themselves in the position of learner.”
It is remarkable how often students comment on the kind of community that PTS is. Fundamentally, we are a community of learners. We practice a mutual education in which students and faculty learn from each other.
“Hospitality is finding a way to commune that is respectful of difference
and mindful of our deep connections.
PTS practices such hospitality. It is a practice and not perfect.
But I am so grateful for the practice.”
Students tell us that PTS challenges them to grow in these ways:
- We are led forth from our comfort zones. Much reading. Research. Challenging professors. Dealing with difference. Take no belief for granted.
- We are taught to think critically, to see the world with clarity and compassion. By means of the curriculum and the way the professors at PTS teach, students gain a way of looking deeper into life and more broadly at the issues of the day.
- We are coming to know Jesus better. Faculty work intensely with students, spiritually and intellectually, in learning together about the way of Jesus and how to follow that way.
“I have been stretched regarding my faith,
challenged to listen to and grapple with the faith of others
without degrading those who hold other viewpoints.”
