What are we doing?

Logsdon is rooted in the vision of HSU’s founder James B. Simmons, a Baptist pastor who fought to end slavery and to educate all students regardless of race, gender, or religion. Given this rich heritage, Logsdon values diversity, welcoming men and women from all backgrounds. Emerging from our Baptist heritage, we focus on the centrality of Scripture, service in and through the church, ethical living, and freedom of conscience.

Why study with us?

At Logsdon, we understand learning to be a collaborative effort. We lead students to engage the great questions of faith and equip them for a journey of discovering, “Who am I?,” “Who is God?,” and “Who is my neighbor?” Students at Logsdon are grounded in the traditions of Scripture and Christian theology and are prepared to be innovative ministers in a rapidly changing world. Out of their rich experience, both in academics and in the church, the first priority of Logsdon faculty is to teach and mentor the next generation of ministers.
