Student Life

Comprehensive training for ministry requires practical experience in an environment of spiritual fellowship.

  • Fellowship

    At TMS, nurturing relationships within the seminary and church family is important. Throughout the year, students and their families have opportunities to fellowship at picnics, banquets, beach days, and family chapels.

  • Chapel

    Every week, students sit under the preaching ministry of a faculty member, alumnus, or guest speaker. Chapel services are live streamed weekly and are available in our chapel archive.

  • Faculty

    Students are mentored, challenged, and nurtured by our faculty, both inside and outside of the classroom. Discipleship meetings allow professors get to know their students personally and disciple them throughout their studies.
