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.)
