Question about Missionary Training for missionaries:
"What seminaries do you recommend for a graduate degree in missions?"
Another possibility is to attend a seminary in a different country. If you want to work in Africa, then you might consider attending a graduate seminary in Kenya. The advantages are that you will be learning about culture and even language, gaining experience in local churches, and reducing the cost of a graduate degree.
Asbury Theological Seminary, in Kentucky, is Evangelical, theologically Methodist, well known and respected. They have both a college and theological seminary.
Columbia International University is in South Carolina, and has a strong emphasis on missions.
Eastern College, in Pennsylvania, is particularly holistic in their mission vision, with special concern for the inner city and problems of poverty.
Fuller Theological Seminary, in California, has both a post college seminary (large) and a smaller School of World Missions with the largest missions faculty in the U.S. Their theological posture is basically reformed.
Gordon College and Gordon-Conwell Seminary, in Massachusetts, have a strong center of mission interest with a Reformed orientation.
Trinity International University, in Illinois, has a strong graduate program in missions.
Editor's note: Also look at distance learning through World Christian Foundations, which came out of the U.S. Center for World Mission in California.
