A Personal Greeting From The President
I was an urban missionary, church planter, and pastor for 23 years. I came here out of the pastorate in 1991, so I know it's no secret that ministry places increasing demands on all persons answering the call today. This calls for greater knowledge, deeper spiritual formation, and sharpening of ministerial skills in knowing how to relate to people, deal with conflict, and engage in spiritual warfare in building a healthy, growing church.
Our faculty – both residential and practicing field teachers – are examples of the integration of head, heart, and hands. They hold the highest degrees and have a deep commitment to Wesleyan-Pentecostal ministry. Their training is wide and deep...and so is their teaching.
Our graduates are pastors and planters of healthy churches, sacrificial missionaries in North America and around the world, confident counselors, Christian educators, chaplains, and persons of compassionate care. They are fully qualified for and have been admitted to the finest graduate institutions for doctoral training in the United States and the world. We offer three master degrees with 15 different concentrations and one doctoral degree (Doctor of Ministry) which trains leaders to excel in the vital practices of ministry.
On campus, extensions, one-week intensives, distance/online education – all these are ways you can receive your training at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary. It's your call. Let us help form you for it. Let us work personally with you, because your ministry is our mission.
In the Spirit of Christ,
Steven Jack Land, Ph. D.
President, Pentecostal Theological Seminary
Professor of Pentecostal Theology
