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.
“Recently I began a part-time position on the pastor leadership team as the Coordinating Pastor of Community Relationships with Englewood Baptist Church, Kansas City, Missouri. It is a position I came to as a direct result of my friendships with and through Central. I am grateful – very, very grateful.”
