Candler’s Baptist Studies program prepares men and women for ordination in the Baptist church, with courses on Baptist history, theology and practice, plus fieldwork in church and ministry settings.
Baptists make up the second largest denominational cohort at Candler, after United Methodists. All the major branches of the Baptist family are represented, leading to lively and reflective conversations about the church. And all of this takes place in Atlanta, the epicenter of modern Baptist life and a city that Baptist leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr. have called home.
Through a challenging curriculum and collaborative work with others, Baptist students at Candler encounter what it means to share the gospel in new ways and in new settings.
For more information on the program, email the Rev. Dr. Khalia J. Williams, associate dean of worship and music and associate professor in the practice of worship, or the Rev. Dr. Damon P. Williams, senior pastor of Providence Missionary Baptist Church, co-directors of Candler’s Baptist Studies program.
