As one of six official seminaries of the Southern Baptist Convention, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri trains hundreds of men and women to become innovative spiritual leaders. Their programs include M.Div. degrees in counseling, pastoral ministry, biblical languages and more, in addition to several Masters of Theological Studies emphases—such as leadership, church planting, preaching and mobilization—and three Doctoral tracks. MBTS uses the Blackboard learning tool to provide some degree options entirely online, and in-person classes begin six times each year, ensuring students maximum flexibility. Students also have the 6,000 volume Spurgeon Center Library and the Midwestern Women’s Institute at their disposal. The Student Life and Events Office coordinates “Timothy Groups,” which are opportunities for students to meet with professors in a more personalized setting outside the classroom. And for a uniquely spiritual experience, many also undergo the special Fusion program, a series of rites of passage designed to embrace the Gospel and infuse students with a sense of responsibility and community service. Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary – a rock of solidarity in an ever-changing world.
