Answering God’s call to servant leadership, through professional or lay ministry, is a life-changing experience. Whether your ministry takes the form of preaching from the pulpit, expressing faithful witness through sacred music or working to ensure equality and justice for all of God’s people, Perkins walks beside you on your journey, as you discern, test and nurture your gifts to realize the full potential of your calling.
At Perkins, you will play a meaningful role in a community of lively dialogue that encourages deep thought and honest reflection. You will learn from and with a diverse faculty of world-renowned scholars and theologians dedicated to helping you live your vocation. Our curriculum blends theological rigor and spiritual growth with real-world internship and leadership experiences, and its locations in Dallas at SMU, or in Houston at its extension campus, offer an extraordinary range of opportunities and learning experiences.
As you become part of the Perkins community, you are joining an academy for the whole church in the whole world. An exception in an increasingly polarized world, Perkins daily embodies the biblical mandate to love our neighbors.
