Covenant Theological Seminary

Covenant Theological Seminary, sometimes known as Covenant Seminary is the denominational seminary of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). Covenant is located in St. Louis, Missouri, and its primary task is to train students for pastoral ministry – including church planting, campus ministry, chaplaincy, and missionary service. The Seminary does not require its students to be members of the PCA, but it is loyal to the teachings of its denomination.

Covenant Seminary’s faculty, as well as the Board of Trustees annually subscribe in the writing to the Bible as the Word of God, immediately inspired and inerrant in its original writings, and to the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms, which, although subordinate to the Bible in their authority, set forth the Seminary’s understanding of biblical faith in a consistent and reliable form. Covenant’s students, on the other hand, affirms the historic Christian beliefs expressed in such documents as the Apostles’ Creed and the Statement of Faith of the National Association of Evangelicals.

Dr. Mark Dalbey serves as the current president of Covenant Theological Seminary. He is also an Associate Professor of Practical Theology.

One thought on “Covenant Theological Seminary

  1. St. Louis is OK, but CTS is great. Without compromising anything theological acumen, the staff is fully committed to real life, ministry skills in their students, of all majors. I have Pentecostal and other non-Reformed friends who — while they don’t agree with everything, nonetheless — feel that there’s nowhere they’d rather be, because of the faculty. Iridescently bright, scholarly and well-read, they are also committed to praying for and discipling students. So glad to be here!
