An Invitation From The President Emeritus
In this new age, most people interested in knowing more about an institution visit it first on line. We are delighted that you have taken this first step. But now, I want to invite you to physically visit New Brunswick Theological Seminary! Come and visit our new and beautiful campus, our historic library and our smart classrooms. More importantly, come and visit one of the most richly diverse seminary communities of teachers and learners in the United States.
While we were founded in 1784, our community reflects the church and world of today. More than half of our students are women, many are second career or bi-vocational, 20% were born outside of the United States, almost 70% are people of color, and together we represent two dozen different denominations. We are the face of the world, and represent a mosaic of unique gifts and experiences that will make your vocation and faith glow with new hope.
Many of our students begin to share their personal stories with the words, “I have fought this move toward ministry for a long time.” We want to be next to you when you discern God’s call on your life. We want to be next to you as you figure out how to best serve God in a world hungry for hope and thirsty for grace.
We want to help kindle the passion and ignite fire for the journey.
You will discover at NBTS that heads and hearts are both inspired, and our commitment to excellent scholarship is coupled with our commitment to practical and prophetic hands-on ministry. I invite you to visit us and I promise you will be welcomed with open arms and hearts as you seek God’s will and way for your life.
Dr. Gregg Mast
President Emeritus of New Brunswick Theological Seminary
