The Logsdon School of Theology
I am very grateful for your interest in Logsdon School of Theology. Exploring God's call to ministry in your life presents exciting prospects and decisions. The choice of a school where you will continue your preparation for a lifetime of service in ministry is one of the most important you will make. Our desire is that you will have a clear sense of direction as you take the next steps in response to God's call. Let me take a moment to explore with you reasons for choosing Logsdon.
First, you will study with an outstanding theological faculty. The Logsdon faculty embodies the highest level of academic scholarship with a deep passion for the church. Each faculty member has outstanding academic credentials, but also brings a wealth of experience through serving local churches to the classroom. At Logsdon we believe that theological education must engage both mind and spirit. We place a priority upon spiritual formation as well as thorough academic training. Our classes are intentionally small so that students truly get to know their professors. Students and faculty also interact outside the classroom through worship experiences, special conferences on campus, and social gatherings.
The Logsdon Master of Divinity program provides the necessary preparation to enter vocational ministry. We offer five tracks that allow a student to specialize his/her training in response to God's calling: Pastoral Ministry, Educational Ministry, Family Ministry, Spiritual Care Ministry, and Missions and Cross Cultural Ministry. Each track provides the learner with essential knowledge from the classical disciplines – biblical, theological, and ministry – while also developing necessary skills for ministry in the 21st century. We combine quality classroom experiences with ministry-based learning in order to prepare our students for serving God's Kingdom. Abilene, the gateway to "The Big Country," is a regional center for west and central Texas with many fine churches located throughout the area.
Logsdon also offers a Master of Arts in Religion designed for those seeking an advanced degree in religion. This degree is ideal for those contemplating further graduate study.
The beautiful facilities of Logsdon are located in the heart of a vibrant university. Students and their families can enjoy the cultural events afforded by the university, including concerts, theater, and athletics. The university environment provides a rich environment for dialogue with other academic disciplines as part of the Logsdon experience.
As you prayerfully consider where to continue your preparations for a lifetime of ministry, I hope you will explore fully the opportunities that await you at Logsdon. We are a committed community of people who are vitally engaged in equipping people to fulfill God's call upon their life. We invite you to join us, and stand ready to assist in every way we can.
