Christian Theological Seminary is more than a seminary.

We welcome all faiths to create an intellectually rigorous, spiritually formative and emotionally supportive education that equips our students to go out into all the world and serve—whether that’s in the church or out in the community. We are here to build disciples committed to helping families, churches and communities flourish. By the time our students leave Christian Theological Seminary (CTS), they are well prepared for leadership in ministry, counseling, education and non-profit leadership. Additionally, we are committed to serving our neighboring communities through the CTS Counseling Center and our Faith & Action Project.
