HST didn’t anticipate COVID-19. But we prepare for crisis and anticipate change. We always do.
HST prepares men and women to serve on the front lines of ministry around the world no matter what that ministry looks like. We can give you the practical skills and knowledge to be an effective servant leader during changing times. We can help you be nimble, creative, and adaptive to serve God’s people in times of peace and times of crisis.
HST can’t anticipate the next crisis. HST can train men and women to be ready to lead through it. Are you ready?
It is impossible to say with certainty what the church or the world will look like after COVID-19. God’s story in both the creation and the redemption, however, gives us lenses to see the outcomes hopefully, and to engage the opportunities of the present with great anticipation.

Not interested in taking graduate classes for credit?
- Consider auditing a class. An auditor takes a course, but does not receive a grade or academic credit. Some auditors will read all of the assigned texts and even write papers and take exams. Others will simply attend the class meetings to hear the lectures or watch the recorded classes on their own time.
- Visit our YouTube Channel: For an informal experience or just to get to know us, you may visit our YouTube channel. We offer devotionals and brief lessons that can boost your personal devotional life or serve as conversation starters for Bible classes or small groups. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear from our students and alumni about their HST experience.
Join a spiritual community through flexible and synchronous online classes. Complete a certificate in as little as one year or a degree in as little as two studying full time. Many HST students continue working while taking classes part time.
