Houston Theological Seminary
A Christian Theological Seminary in Texas
Houston Theological Seminary is an evangelical and multi-denominational community, which exists as a graduate school within Houston Christian University to provide a Christ-centered biblical education for the church and for the city. Drawing on our foundation in biblical studies, the goal of our theological school is to bring together the best of missional and academic resources to further the Kingdom of God. We partner with Second Baptist Church Houston so our ministry classes are taught by those on the front lines. Students also have access to graduate level courses from other parts of the university, such as the business school, to supplement their theological education for the practicalities of modern ministry.
