When I tell people I am in seminary, they often respond with sympathy because they think all I do is read about what old theologians have to say about God and that what I’m learning has no practical value. This is not the case at the Anderson University School of Theology because the faculty blends rigorous academic work with practical ministry involvement that challenges us to discover the real-world implications for what we are learning in class.

After graduating from AU in 2007, we wanted to find a seminary that we could both attend. Nothing compared to the Anderson University School of Theology in terms of affordability or housing options. Plus, we already felt connected to the campus. It was a great decision to come here. The faculty is so passionate, and we’ve felt encouragement from our peers in the seminary community. We feel much more prepared to pursue our calling into ministry.

I have grown spiritually and academically through the relationships built within the Anderson University School of Theology. The MAIS program has equipped me to serve and relate to cultures within the United States and abroad. The courses, content, and conversations demonstrate how we can engage in God’s mission through traditional and non-traditional ways of doing ministry in this changing world.

The Anderson University School of Theology has impacted me by giving me more knowledge for ministry. I’ve been able to minister at Pasadena Heights Church of God in Indianapolis because of my connection with the AU SOT. But the main thing about this place is that it is journey. I have learned that God has humor, and I’ve had to get used to his humor because he has often forced me out of my comfort zone, helping me to grow.

I arrived at the Anderson University School of Theology to develop a greater command of Scripture and a better understanding of the mission of Jesus Christ. Through the help of a gifted and passionate faculty, along with a relevant curriculum, the SOT is proving to be a positive force in my development. I would recommend it to anyone searching for an institution that is fully committed to helping them grow into a more effective disciple of Jesus.
