St. Timothy’s Theological College and Seminary (STTCS) serves as an instrument to aid the bishops of the Church in the execution of the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Mt 28:19). Thus the mission of STTCS is to identify and to train godly men for ordination to the sacred ministry or in other leadership capacities in order to plant, nurture and grow churches or other ministries.
STTCS specifically seeks to provide a high quality education and spiritual formation consistent with creedal Christianity and biblical morality that is economical, flexible, convenient and practical. Our faculty is staffed by professionals who teach, instead of professional teachers. Our mission is essentially a ministry – a ministry to connect mature and experienced leaders with the next generation of leadership – to give as much as we can to this rising leadership cadre, not take. Because we believe that it is more blessed to give than to receive. And to accomplish this, many of our faculty and staff freely contribute their time, talents and expertise well beyond their remuneration, in order to keep tuition low and scholarship rates high for students. We also provide continuing education programs that nurture holiness, academic excellence and professional, practical competence for the existing clergy and other leadership of the Church.
