Modular Course Week
Regular semester courses are on pause for this week, and two one-week intensive courses are underway: Christian Worship (Dr. Allan Effa), and New Testament Intro (Dr. Keir Hammer).
These week-long courses are such an important format for working students, for those in ministry who are interested in continuing education and professional development (that includes those who are simply auditing a course).
Our next modular courses are offered in January, and we’d love to have you join us for those courses (Intercultural Communication, Evangelism and Church Planting, and Pastor as Leader, taught by Cam Roxburgh). As well, intensive courses will be offered in Spring Session in May 2018.
Remember to bookmark our Upcoming Intensives page to review your opportunities for these convenient courses, and enjoy a week of refreshing, encouraging study with Taylor Seminary.

Announcement: Partnership with Sioux Falls Seminary Creating Opportunity
A partnership agreement between Sioux Falls Seminary and Taylor Seminary, signed in June 2015, is uniting these institutions and creating groundbreaking new opportunities in theological education.
This partnership began with a focus on online education, faculty development and global theological education. Over the past two years, the partnership has deepened significantly and has resulted in the integration of some systems, operational functions and academic programming.

onWORD Conference adds Art Exhibit
The 8th annual onWORD Conference has added a new element for 2017: an art exhibit. Artists are contributing works that are related to our theme as a way for us to reflect and engage with our theme. These works of art will be available for sale through a silent auction.
Another highlight of the conference will be a first-century feast, complete with specially-sourced ancient ingredients. This is a fun opportunity for those who want to really understand and experience the culture and setting of this story.
