President's Greeting

Welcome to the Phillips Theological Seminary community. We’re a nationwide network of students, faculty, churches, alumni/ae, trustees, and friends dedicated to learning and living the way of Jesus.

At the heart of this community is a school in which interpretation, context, conversation and vocation matter deeply.

If you’re looking for a place where everyone agrees on a set of doctrines or rules, this is not the place for you. If you’re looking for a group in which everyone understands ministry, mission, and church in the same way, we will not be able to help you.


  • If you’re looking for a gathering of scholars that takes very seriously the expression of God’s justice and shalom in the world and converses about those things all the time…
  • If you’re looking for a school that will push you to question your assumptions about how to interpret the scriptures and how or how not to see Jesus in them and in the world…
  • If you’re looking for people who will care about your context, the contexts of your classmates, the multiple contexts of our churches and our peoples…
  • If you’re looking for a place in which your own vocation as a faith leader can be nurtured and sustained throughout your life…

Then Phillips might just be the community for you. If you’re interested in joining our community as a student, auditor, or friend, please let me know.

Interim President and Stephen J. England Associate Professor of the Practice of Ministry
