Video Messages From the Faculty

tozer professors

A faculty focused on transformation and ministry.

Our seminary is named after A. W. Tozer because like Tozer we are committed to Christlike transformation. To this end our faculty members are adjunct by design. The men and women who teach our courses are practitioners in ministry; they are appropriately trained and credentialed to teach graduate level education and are scholars in the context of being godly disciples! For background information on our faculty click on the "Staff and Faculty" tab on the bottom half of this page. Watch the video for testimonies from Tozer professors about their approach to training you.

Intimate and personal.

Classes are small and you will have the opportunity to ask your questions and to personally interact with your instructors. We believe this is a far more powerful learning experience than large classes. Dialogues allow you to clarify your understanding and access the wisdom of the instructor. The video testimony at right from student Josh Yang illustrates this approach. (Click below to read Josh Yang's story.)

Highlights of Some of Our 1-Week Intensives

mount

GOD, HUMANITY & ANGELS

Professor Tom Mount

This class explores the beauty and wonder of our triune God; the complex nature, tragic history and redemptive possibilities of humanity; and the fascinating realm of angels. The course reverently examines these mysteries without trying to comprehend them fully. Our goal is to better understand God and His ways so that we might more consistently adore and commune with Him, seeking more intimate union with Him in this life and the life to come. The main text is Thomas Oden's Classic Christianity.

PERSONAL HEALTH OF THE LEADER

Professor Gary Tangeman

This course addresses the spiritual, psychological, emotional, mental, physical, and relational aspects of being a leader. This course also deals with the complexities of church family life, the great need for self-awareness, the discipline of staying mindful of other people’s expectations, and honoring wise boundaries in relationships.

PASTORAL LEADERSHIP

Professor Leron Heath

Emphasis will be on developing competencies related to strategic planning as well as planning and leading group meetings (boards, committees, task forces) in the various areas of ministry (worship, education, evangelism, missions, and fellowship). Politics within a congregational setting will also be explored.

PREACHING THE WORD
