About Us

A welcome from the director

Choosing a school of theology goes beyond a particular degree you can obtain.  It’s about the personal journey you take as you study Scripture, church history, Christian thought and personal formation. At the Hazelip School of Theology, you will explore important subjects in our discipline while learning how it affects the pursuit of ministry in all its forms. Come here to gain a deeper understanding of theological discourse and grow as a Kingdom witness wherever you may find yourself. As one of only a handful of ATS-accredited graduate schools in the region, Hazelip offers the academic rigor you would expect as well as an integrated approach to learning that will enrich your faith.

Director, Hazelip School of Theology
