Why Choose Taylor Seminary?

Welcome to Taylor Seminary, where faith and learning come together to build the leaders of tomorrow!

God has a plan for you -- and a wonderful plan for your mind, and for the gifts he has given you. At Taylor Seminary, we seek to prepare you for the ministry He has called you to; we are here to give you the tools you need to engage society with the transforming message of Jesus Christ.

Our stated purpose is to develop Christ-minded leaders who make a difference in the world. As our president, Dr. David Williams says, the most important part of that mission statement is not the word "leaders", but the words "Christ-minded".

When you consider Taylor Seminary, you are preparing yourself to embrace the doctrine of Jesus Christ in a warm, inclusive environment of strong educational and social support. You'll also be studying with caring, highly-competant professors, and you'll be in class with a vibrant student body from various denominational and national backgrounds.

Thank you for your interest in Taylor Seminary! 

We hope to provide the best place for ministry training or theological study as you learn how best to serve God.
