Established in 1956, Covenant Theological Seminary was born out of a desire to maintain the integrity of God’s Word and to proclaim God’s truth in face of accelerating unbelief. Today, we remain as firmly committed as ever to excellence in theological education from a Reformed perspective and to our distinct emphasis on the power of the gospel to transform lives and to motivate hearts for ministry. By God’s grace, we have grown from humble beginnings (we had only 11 students when we began) into one of the leading evangelical seminaries in North America, with nearly 3,000 alumni serving in every state and 40 nations around the world.
