Gammon Theological Seminary
Mission: The Mission of Gammon Theological Seminary, a historically African American institution, in partnership with The Interdenominational Theological Center, is to recruit, support, and educate faithful pastors and leaders in their call to ministry in the church, community, and throughout the world.
Gammon Theological Seminary was founded in 1883 by the Methodist Episcopal Church. Gammon is The United Methodist component of a consortium of six historically African American theological schools, The Interdenominational Theological Center.
Gammon at ITC is a co-educational, professional graduate school of theology. Its faculty personifies vigorous scholarship, rigorous academic discipline, and significant research in the service of the church and other communities in the world. It is the world’s premier resource for black church scholarship and faith-based solutions to the spiritual and socio-economic challenges confronting the African-American community.
The institution’s long-standing scholar/minister public theologian tradition prepares students for preaching, teaching, and a range of other roles in church and society. The institution’s 160 courses fall into four major areas of study: biblical studies and languages; philosophy, theology, ethics, and history; persons, society, and culture; and the Church and its mission.
Vision: At Gammon, the vision is to equip and educate the next generation of faith leaders to clarify and enhance their call to ministry.
