Introduction to Graduate School of Theology
The Graduate School of Theology at Azusa Pacific University is an expansion of an institution that began in 1899 with the formation of the Training School for Christian Workers. Devoted Christian educators from the Evangelical Friends (Quaker) and Methodist churches provided education for ministry at the training school through the early part of the 20th century. Today, Graduate School of Theology exists as a interdenominational school to carry on and expand this fundamental purpose of training men and women for effective ministry in the church.
