The United difference

“The Christ-centeredness was extremely important. So many other seminaries were kind of drifting to other places. [United] was anchored in apostolic Christianity yet with an eye to the future. It was much more practice than it was academic. The academic expectation was there, but they weren’t training people to go teach in seminaries – they were training people to go be effective in the local church.”

Message for future students

“It’s the mix you find at United. You have Evangelicals, and you have Pentecostals, and you have people from a more progressive background. It’s accepted to come with questions and to diverge in theology – but at the same time it’s going to push you on ‘Jesus is the Messiah.’ And I think the racial diversity is extremely important.”
