Join Trinity Evangelical Divinity School for a theological education and a spiritual journey that will prepare you for a lifetime of service in Christ’s Kingdom.
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) is a learning community dedicated to the development of servant leaders for the global church: leaders who are spiritually, biblically and theologically prepared to engage contemporary culture for the sake of Christ’s kingdom. TEDS is an environment that embraces both orthodoxy and diversity of thought in theology and church practice. The TEDS community includes future pastors, scholars, counselors, missionaries, and others from all walks of life united by faith, together seeking an education that will equip and prepare them for a lifetime of service in His kingdom.
TEDS, one of the largest seminaries in the world, enrolls more than 1,200 graduate students in professional and academic programs, including more than 150 in its PhD programs. At the heart of the divinity school is the Master of Divinity program, preparing pastors, teachers, and missionaries for many kinds of service. TEDS also offers a range of more focused Master of Arts programs in Mental Health Counseling, Counseling Ministries, Ministry, Christian Studies, New Testament, Old Testament, Intercultural Studies and many other disciplines.
Additionally, TEDS offers advanced degrees such as the Master of Theology (ThM) and Doctor of Ministry (DMin). Three academic PhD programs are also offered in these fields: Educational Studies, Intercultural Studies, and Theological Studies (with concentrations in OT, NT, Systematic Theology and Historical Theology).
