Truett in San Antonio

San Antonio

Seeking to reach students who cannot pursue traditional, in-residence theological education, Baylor’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary has announced that it plans to launch an extension campus for the San Antonio region in 2021.

Housed at San Antonio’s Trinity Baptist Church, the proposed extension campus will offer Master of Arts in Christian Ministry (MACM) and Master of Theological Studies (MTS) degrees beginning the summer of 2021, with occasional courses beginning in spring of that year. 

The degrees will focus on — but not be limited to — three groups of potential candidates: recent college graduates; practitioners of Christian ministry who do not yet have formal theological training or are unable to leave their ministry to pursue in-residence theological training at Truett’s main campus; and laity with theological and ministerial interests.

“We are particularly grateful for an opportunity to partner with Rev. Dr. D. Leslie Hollon and the other ministers and members of the historic, strategic Trinity Baptist Church to provide a rigorous, relevant theological education that is both informative and transformative,” said Truett Seminary Dean Todd D. Still, PhD, holder of The Charles J. and Eleanor McLerran Delancey Chair of the Dean and The William M. Hinson Chair of Christian Scriptures.

“Furthermore, we are eager to join hearts and hands with other Christian congregations and organizations in San Antonio and South Texas to provide the knowledge and skills as well as to model the attitudes and habits necessary to flourish in ministry in both the short and long term.”
