What Our Students Say:
Truett has been a transformative place for me where I have discovered through experience and gracious guidance that God is not only bigger than I thought but more loving as well. I have found that Truett is a Christian community that values belonging, spiritual growth, theological aptitude, and sensitive pastoral care while nurturing students in serious theological inquiry centered on the gospel, grace, and truth of Christ. I am thankful that Truett is preparing current and future ministers for the ongoing work of the Church in today’s challenging world. Truett is not just a place to learn but is an experience of God through the work of His people.
Truett is a special place with many special people. I am so glad that God has called me to a place I can explore my faith while learning about why I believe what I believe. Being at Truett is helping me to become a better servant of God's people. Even though I am only at the beginning of this journey, I know that God has placed me within a thriving community. Personally, I would not want to be anywhere else and it is a blessing.
When I think about Truett I think about relationships. The emphasis on community and spiritual formation has strengthened my relationship with God and integrity as a leader. Professors are highly relational and being challenged to think deeply about scripture, tradition, church, community, and beyond has enabled me to better practice my faith.
