Leadership Giving

        Central Seminary exists to prepare Christian leaders who love rightly, judge wisely, and lead gently.


        The Need:  The actual cost of educating our students significantly outweighs the amount we charge for tuition and fees. On average, each student pays only about one-fifth the actual cost of the education received. We depend on God’s people to make up the difference. Constituents who participate in our Leadership Giving program, for instance, help us to bridge the funding gap and assist us in preparing Christian leaders. Apart from the generosity of those like you, many of our students simply could not afford the quality education that Central Seminary provides.

        The Work:  Active Students – Currently, around 100 students exist in the M.A., M.Div., Th.M., and D.Min. programs.

        Faculty:  Gifted and qualified professors with pastoral experience provide ministerial education of the highest quality.

        Accreditation:  Central is fully accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS).

        Missions:  In addition to training students for global missions, Central sends professors all around the world.
