About Phillips

Phillips Theological Seminary is a graduate seminary, affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We are dedicated to learning the way of Jesus in order to cultivate vital congregations, communities, conversations and the public good.

At our core, 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.

Our primary purpose is to serve the church's need for educated leaders – ordained and lay. Located in Tulsa, Okla., we offer a unique brand of theological education in this region of the country – welcoming all denominations. We also welcome students who are not pursuing ministerial degrees, but who want to explore and deepen their faith by taking specific courses in our curriculum.

We have 25 trustees, 110 current students seeking graduate credit, 42 students who have recently taken courses for personal enrichment, approximately 1,700 living alumni, about 800 individuals and congregations that donate annually and a dedicated faculty (full-time, affiliate, and adjunct) and staff.
