Theological education! That's the heartbeat of Gardner-Webb University School of Divinity! In the truest sense of the word "theological," we exist to equip, nurture, encourage, and support men and women for service in the Kingdom of God. Excellent scholars teach the classical Christian disciplines with full awareness that academics alone will not meet the needs, concerns, and challenges of Christian ministry to which God calls us. We are certain that unless we attend to our spiritual, personal, and emotional development, the ministries to which we are called will fall short of our Lord's expectations. At Gardner-Webb University, great faith manifests itself in who you are and how you act. Greatness, after all, is really about changing lives and helping others. Here you'll test your intellectual mettle - and you'll also seek your purpose. You'll strive to find that place where your faith reaches out to meet the needs of the world. In other words, your calling.
