Welcome from the Dean
Learning the way of Jesus is the centerpiece of our academic work at Phillips Theological Seminary. And learning that way requires deep attention to the biblical witnesses, to the theological heritage of those committed to understanding the work of God, to the varieties of cultures and contexts that comprise our 21st century world.
Attending to these things, however, is only the first step. We also invite you to:
acquire wisdom in the intellectual and spiritual practices found in the Christian traditions;
cultivate skill in the tasks of faithful leadership like preaching, caring, educating, administering;
increase knowledge of the lives and experiences of others, particularly of those who are too often invisible or too often pushed aside;
develop a vocational identity that transforms and sustains you throughout your ministry, wherever and however that may be.
We invite you to join a community of learners and teachers, both online and on-campus, in intense periods of encounter and study, and in measured weeks of disciplined reflection and conversation. We invite you to join in vital conversations in service to vital communities which are dedicated to the public good.
The way of Jesus is broad and deep. Come explore it with us.
