Columbia Theological Seminary exists to educate and nurture faithful, imaginative, and effective leaders for the sake of the Church and the world.
Columbia Theological Seminary is an educational institution of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and a community of theological inquiry and formation for ministry in the service of the Church of Jesus Christ. Located in Decatur, Georgia, just east of the city of Atlanta, Columbia offers seven graduate degree programs and dozens of lifelong learning courses and events as a resource for church professionals and lay people.
Come and see what God is doing to prepare and nurture pastors and educators and youth ministers; chaplains in hospitals, in the military, in schools/colleges/ universities; teachers, counselors, caregivers, missionaries, evangelists, community leaders, and leaders in congregations and the church at large for the proclamation of the reign of Christ on earth as it is in heaven.
Our new seminary president Leanne Van Dyk reflects on future challenges for theological education, and some directions she would like to explore at Columbia Theological Seminary.
The faculty and staff at Columbia Theological Seminary taught me the importance of leading with love by first seeking understanding.
