We are grateful for the many gifts we receive from alumni, friends, churches, foundations and corporations each year.

Each gift increases our capacity to offer an intellectually rigorous, spiritually formative and emotionally supportive education to those preparing to become church and community leaders in service to God’s transforming of the world.

Why We Give

Giving makes theological and counseling education possible for students who would otherwise be unable to afford it.

Giving supports practical learning through field education, counseling internships and residencies,  and travel experiences.
