  1. Pros
    Excellent New Testament department. Solid reformed views, but welcoming to people who aren’t Presbyterians or Calvinists. Great for learning theology and preaching. The counseling department has a good reputation, although I wasn’t in that track. The denomination behind the school is solid. Some of the professors are truly godly people who will make you better pastors.

    Cons
    The OT department is disappointing. Young earth views are treated with hostility and frequently mocked by staff members. One of the OT professors is a lightning rod of unnecessary controversy, and some churches won’t accept Covenant grads as a result.

    Like most seminaries, it will feel overly academic and detached from actually ministry at times.

  2. St. Louis is OK, but CTS is great. Without compromising anything theological accumen, the staff is fully committed to real life, ministry skills in their students, of all majors. I have Pentecostal and other non-Reformed friends who — while the don’t agree with everything, nonetheless — feel that there’s nowhere they’d rather be, because of the faculty. Iridescently bright, scholarly and well-read, they are also committed to praying for and discipling students. So glad to be here!
