Educational Effectiveness at Bethany Theological Seminary

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Bethany Theological Seminary equips spiritual and intellectual leaders with an Incarnational education for ministering, proclaiming, and living out God's shalom and Christ's peace in the church and world. This mission statement speaks about the content and outcomes of the graduate degree programs offered at the Seminary. We are committed to providing excellence in education and formation.

Educational EffectivenessBethany works diligently to create an environment for student success. Assessment of student learning is a high priority for our institution. We have developed a variety of tools and practices that allow faculty and staff to review these assessment data to measure the effectiveness of our programs. Some data come from our internal reports; other data come from information gathered by the Association of Theological Schools, one of our accrediting agencies.

Updated on an annual basis, some of these data are presented here as a downloadable PDF to demonstrate the effectiveness of the educational experience at Bethany Theological Seminary.

(Certificate of Achievement in Theological Studies)

JeffFor nine years I felt the leading of God to ministry. I began my academic journey thinking that I had God all figured out. This journey began at Moody Bible Institute for several semesters, where I gleaned perspective on missions and evangelism. Because of a full-time missionary role, I suspended Moody classes to concentrate on raising support. During that time God began to speak to me about the overall disunity in our Christian church. I came to the conclusion that unity within the body of Christ is the best way to reach lost souls with greater depth. I started exploring the Anabaptist teaching and specifically the way the Church of the Brethren strives toward this vision of unity and reconciliation.
