Knox prepares leaders to minister in a 21st-century context by emphasizing the application of Scripture to all areas of life, providing exceptional academic instruction, in the tradition of the Reformed faith, as well as guidance for spiritual growth. Students from other evangelical perspectives are encouraged to apply and are heartily welcomed. Attention is directed to the inner life of the pastor/teacher as well as an emphasis on community, blending the theoretical and practical in an urban environment. Knox seeks to become a blessing to the city where God has placed them, bringing spiritual, cultural, and community renewal to South Florida as well as around the world through Knox Online.


Knox’s 35 full-time, adjunct, and visiting instructors give students enrolled in its four degree programs instruction designed to “train the mind and nurture the heart.” The Knox faculty features some very gifted younger scholars and several of the nation’s leading theological minds.


Knox received accreditation in 2003 through the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada. ATS accreditation is recognized by the United States Department of Education and the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation for the accreditation of graduate professional theological education.


Knox currently offers four approved degree programs:

  • Doctor of Ministry
  • Master of Divinity
  • Master of Arts (Christian and Classical Studies)
  • Master of Arts (Biblical and Theological Studies)

Knox seeks to train both the mind and heart–to integrate solid Biblical, historical, and practical theology with true spirituality, enabling students to become leaders of church and society. This dual commitment to mind and heart is evidenced in graduate surveys showing that students leave Knox “more theologically conservative” and with a “stronger faith.”

Knox graduates serve as pastors, professors, Christian educators, counselors, evangelists, missionaries, and lay-leaders. Fully 66 percent of Knox graduates report that after studying at Knox their theological position shifted and became “more conservative,” according to a survey conducted by the Association of Theological Schools. Knox graduates also report that their trust in God was “stronger” or “much stronger” as a consequence of their Knox education. A 2012 Knox graduate said: “My Knox education has completely changed my life. I never imagined that this school would leave such a huge impression on my heart and soul. The professors have taught me to love the Word of God….”

One Review

  1. I am a DMin student at Knox and offer the highest endorsement for this institution and their programs. I attended Princeton Theological Seminary and Liberty Theological Seminary where I earned my masters degree, but find Knox to be superior in every respect. The staff and faculty are knowledgeable, relatable and genuinely care for the well-being of the students. The coursework is challenging, but appropriately so. This is a wonderful school with fantastic options for students who are seeking an education, not simply a degree.
