About Truett Seminary

At Baylor's Truett Seminary, students are equipped with both knowledge and experience to pursue God's call to ministry. Students work in mentoring relationships alongside pastors, international missionaries and leaders of faith-based entities to gain a unique understanding of life in ministry and insight into the day-to-day operations of churches and organizations. Truett graduates are academically prepared and spiritually equipped to lead and to serve the Church and a world in need.

We are pastors and scholars. We are educators and mentors. We are students and ministers.
