Welcome to the New Brunswick Theological Seminary. We are blessed and thankful that you are visiting our website. Let me introduce you to our home away from home. New Brunswick Theological Seminary, affectionately referred to as NBTS was founded in 1784. During that time, NBTS was known as the Holy Hill. We are proud to be the first Protestant seminary in the United States of America with a strong tradition in the Reformed church. Under the leadership of our President Emeritus, Dr. Gregg A. Mast, we have improved our historic library, built a new beautiful campus, and enhanced our world class faculty.
As we celebrate and honor our Reformed tradition, we have grown into an inter-cultural, ecumenical school of Christian faith, learning, and scholarship that is committed to its metro-urban and global contexts. More than half of our students are women; many students are second career or bi-vocational; 20 percent were born outside of the United States; nearly 70 percent are people of color, and our student population is made-up of 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.
To quote John Maxwell, “We teach what we know. We reproduce who we are.” At NBTS, we know theological education and we are a richly diverse and a committed family of God. Come learn and grow with us – “The Holy Hill @ 35 Seminary Place.” You will discover, embrace, and be affirmed by a community that is inspired toward excellence in education and committed to practical and prophetic hands-on ministry. It’s with genuine hearts that will welcome you with open arms as you seek God’s will and way for your life.
