At Perkins School of Theology, the gifts and fruits and labor of theological study and teaching are available not only to those enrolled in regular courses but also to others throughout the church and wider community.
Each year church and community leaders benefit from Perkins’ programs such as Perkins Fall Convocation, which offers lectures and workshops to practicing church professionals; Perkins Summit for Faith and Learning, which highlights seminary professors who are leaders in their fields to facilitate studies in Bible and contemporary issues in theology; and Perkins School of Youth Ministry, which brings comprehensive training to family ministry leaders.
