  1. After researching and visiting seminaries across North America, I chose TEDS because it was the best mix of academic rigor and practical ministry training. TEDS is a place where students and faculty from diverse backgrounds learn together. TEDS students are involved in a wide variety of ministries, from church planting in the city, ministry to international students, and pastoring rural churches.

  2. For students hoping to pursue ministry, there are many opportunities for placement and the required internships also provide an incentive to prioritize professional experience. All of these experiences are carefully mentored and my one-on-one time with faculty in these capacities has shaped me so much. he professors are so careful to value the personal growth of their students, praying for them and investing in their lives.

  3. I went to TEDS from 1991 to 1995 to work on my M.Div., then returned briefly in the fall of 1998 when I changed programs and thought to do an M.A. in Church History. In my time there, I experienced the continual rudeness of the student body. You could spend an entire day navigating around the campus without having a single person even say hi to you. Everyone spent all their time in class or in the library. Nobody attended chapel unless it was someone famous behind the microphone, like Chuck Swindoll or John Stott. The dorms they put us in had no air conditioning and are now slated for demolition. Not a nice place to live for four years, and the people contributed to my utter disgust with evangelical culture.
