Candler empowers real possibilities. We are committed to both church and academy, to the preparation of ministers and other religious leaders, and to the education of outstanding academic scholars in religion. We are committed to making theological education affordable.
Candler is slated to launch five new degree programs to meet the needs of people who are seeking a theological education to complement their work in ministry and other professions, such as medicine, law and community development.
'In today's church, many leaders engage in meaningful ministries that might be enhanced with more formal training. Moreover, in today's world, issues of faith often find their way to the forefront, and many people in a range of professions have questions about how to handle those situations,' says Candler Dean Jan Love. 'A seminary education can be incredibly beneficial in understanding how to approach these complex, interrelated issues.'
