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.

News & Events

Dr. Robert A. Kolb, Professor Emeritus at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO, will deliver a 3-part lecture series entitled, "What Did Martin Luther Change, and Why?" for the 2017 Parchman Endowed Lecture Series on Oct. 24-25. All events are free and open to the public and will be held in the Paul W. Powell Chapel at Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary.
Richard Baggett and his wife, Miwes, began serving as a bivocational chaplain at Gateway RV Park in the Texas Rio Grande Valley in 2016. The year before, at age 70, Baggett had completed a two-year ministry certificate program at Baylor’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary. And with the couple’s 40-plus years of spare-time RV-ing — plus a pleasant year of living in the Valley more than 40 years ago — the opportunity seemed a perfect fit. For Baggett, “the certification worked out marvelously,” he said. “It gave me the credentials I needed. I didn’t have to go in debt to do it. And I didn’t have to mess with Greek and Hebrew.” “Being a chaplain is called ‘a ministry of presence,’” he said. “You’re there as much as you can – potluck, bingo, sitting and talking and mingling so they get to know you as a person, an RV-er instead of just as a chaplain.”
Come and explore the possibility of walking as a pilgrim and witness along an ancient pilgrim trail in May-June 2018. Dr. Stroope and a group of Truett students will join pilgrims from all over Europe, and those who have walked the Via Francigena since the 10th century, on a journey from Canterbury, England, through France, Switzerland, and Italy, to Rome. This three-hour credit class (Summer 1) will afford the opportunity to explore the ancient and modern traditions of pilgrimage, to visit primary sites of the medieval church, to give and receive witness to/from fellow pilgrims, and to seek God through prayer, walking, reflection, and conversation. Two information meetings will be held on Aug 30th and Sept 1st, both at 11:00am in room 236. Space is limited and selection is by application only.
Dr. Terry York, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for Truett Theological Seminary, is the author of a number of hymns. His new hymn, "Peace of Our Praying” is a collection of individual phrases—snapshots—that together create a collage that can then be viewed as a whole. Dr. York works in conjunction with Dr. David Bolin who composes the musical tune to the lyrics Dr. York writes.
After almost 30 years as a pastor, Dr. Delvin Atchison came to Baylor's George W. Truett Theological Seminary as a student—and learned things he hadn't known he needed to learn.
