Bible, Ministry, and Theology

At the intersection of head, heart, and hands.


Our best theology manifests itself in real world ministry. With a focus on applying our studies in service to the church, HST provides an urban context for doing the art of ministry — even as a student.


Our best ministry flows from deep understanding of God and his mission. HST offers rich academic resources and a supportive community dedicated to the ministry of study.

Education for Adults

Studying in a graduate-student-only context frees you to focus on your academic and ministry goals and your own spiritual formation. Faculty teach only graduate courses, and your peers are as committed as you are to kingdom service.
