CTS Alumni: Unite, Inspire, Invest.

Christian Theological Seminary would not be the institution it is without the ongoing support of our alumni. You will always be considered a vital part of the CTS family. Together, we can make a difference for those we are called to serve as God transforms the world. Together, let us unite in faith, inspire spiritual growth and service, and invest in those around us, including current and future CTS students, communities and congregations.

There are more than 2000 of your fellow alumni across the country. As you continue to serve out God’s calling in your ministry and lives, we hope you will stay connected to the CTS community. Likewise, we remain a resource for your continued theological education and ministry.
