Open & Affirming statement and non-discrimination policy

Open, Welcoming and Affirming Statement 

We declare ourselves to be an Open, Welcoming and Affirming theological school, welcoming into the full academic, business and community life of our school persons of every race, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, economic status, and faith tradition. We are committed to modeling Christian faith that works toward openness and understanding, offering justice, healing, and wholeness for all people. We believe that through our embrace of diversity and meaningful engagement of the other we can all grow in our self-understanding as children of God. From this place we believe we will be better able to practice our faith and fulfill our mission to empower church leaders as transformative witnesses of God's abundant grace and love for a broken world.
