COLUMBIA THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY EXISTS TO EDUCATE AND NURTURE FAITHFUL, IMAGINATIVE, AND EFFECTIVE LEADERS FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHURCH AND THE WORLD.

Encountering God

Cultivating Leaders

Transforming Communities

God is living and active in the world near and far. In academically rigorous classes, we study the work God is already doing, challenging students to imagine what God will do through them and their peers.

We are preparing visionary leaders who bring clarity and direction to their ministries, leaders who dwell in the realm of possibility, choosing to enact what can be instead of settling for what is. Internships are one of the many avenues for students to learn and practice their leadership.

We shape and partner with communities in new, profound, and prophetic ways. We boldly proclaim the Gospel and actively seek God's justice in the church and the world. Campus life includes regular worship, fellowship opportunities, and community meals. Beyond the campus, students unite their education with society's most pressing issues.

Each student at Columbia is a gift to the community with his or her own God-given talents. While many are from the southeastern United States, others are drawn from all corners of the world. Politically and theologically, they represent a diverse spectrum of viewpoints. Yet, all of our students share one essential characteristic: God has called each one to faithful discipleship and leadership in Christ’s Church.
