All of our professors hold earned doctorate degrees and are graduates of such respected institutions as Yale, Duke, Vanderbilt, Fuller Seminary, and Hebrew University, to name a few. We have earned the maximum 10-year accreditation from the Association of Theological Schools (ATS), which assures you an education that is academically challenging and a degree that is well respected across denominations.
