About the School of Theology

The School of Theology is committed to cultivating the minds of students who have godly character and who demonstrate both thoughtfulness and maturity. Our desire is unique among theology schools in Colorado: to come alongside students to offer encouragement, direction, and support as they become a well-founded evangelical scholar. Students participate in rigorous academic programs that offer a variety of viewpoints within Christianity and lead to an intelligent commitment to the gospel.

Scholarship itself is ministry to the church and is for service to the church. It fosters an environment where students learn to respect various Christian perspectives, develop an informed faith commitment, and avoid simplistic answers to complex questions. Through experienced faculty, theology students receive a thorough grounding in the primary sources of their fields, and critically engage with the best scholarship research and study in the 21st century.
