Central Baptist Theological Seminary has a vision for collaborative and transformative relationships with churches, as well as to provide excellent ministry preparation. To that end, the seminary endeavors to be a resource for ministry leaders.
The recently renovated, state-of-the-art library is available for personal study and small meetings. In addition to its traditional book and periodical collection, visitors will want to visit the developing Des Peres collection of resources for congregational health or the Yang collection on global christianity. Online library resources are available for current students and Central alumni/ae.
Faculty and staff are considered to be among the seminary’s greatest assets. Courses are available for lifelong learning , including the recently developed FOUNDATIONS ministry certificate program. Resource pages created by Central faculty and staff are available for download.
Central Seminary has a tradition of providing quality continuing education events as well. Current Faculty, as well as excellent speakers from sister organizations, provide timely content for ministry leaders and others interested theological issues. Watch here for information and registration for these events.
I started with Central Baptist Theological Seminary in 2010 as a student in the MDiv program. I wasn’t sure then and I am still not sure now what God has planned for me. I have been transitioning from a career in science to a calling in ministry and the experiences, classes and personal relationships I have been a part of with CBTS have helped me in my Camping Ministry with ABC of WI as well as my work in my church as CE Director. I also commute an hour and a half one way to classes each weekend and I have been the recipient of some wonderful hospitality from fellow students. We truly are a community. I am excited to see what is in store and I know I have a great support team!
