Changing World. Unchanging Word.
Ministry thrives where the unchanging Word of God intersects with a constantly changing world. Ministry is about reaching people – letting Christ transform our lives and communities. But is this simply a nicely stated ideal, or is it a living, breathing reality? Ministry is hard, full of difficult questions, challenging situations and imperfect people. Corban University School of Ministry is dedicated to providing seminary training that equips Christian leaders to study the Word of God with integrity, and prepares them to face the challenges of everyday ministry.
Seminary is not about answering every question you may encounter. It is about developing a holistic biblical worldview and the right tools to discern the answers. It is about being prepared to apply biblical truth in a variety of social and cultural contexts. It is about speaking the truth of the gospel with humility and grace.
