As the Interim President of Erskine College, it is my great privilege to introduce you to a seminary that has educated pastors and scholars in the Reformed tradition since 1837. Erskine Theological Seminary, as a graduate school of Erskine College, provides the opportunity to study with professors committed to the nurture of both heart and mind as they prepare students not only academically, but also practically for ministry in the Church, on the mission field, and in academia. With a bent toward the development of pastors, seminary faculty share wisdom honed through extensive experience serving in church ministry as shepherds of Christ’s flock. The seminary’s small classes and its challenging yet nurturing environment provide an ideal setting to prepare for spiritual calling.

Although the seminary’s main campus is located in Due West, SC, other locations include Columbia and an extension site in Greenville. These additional locations, augmented by online curricula, allow the seminary to afford its students both the flexibility and the convenience of obtaining excellent theological training in today’s fast-paced world. The seminary offers the MDiv, MAPM, MATS, MACC, ThM, and DMin degrees with a variety of options. Seminary professors nurture a community of scholars who exalt Christ and his finished work on the cross. I pray that as you ground yourself in a comprehensive biblical and Reformed perspective, you will be greatly strengthened to serve as a faithful minister of the Gospel. May God’s richest blessing be yours as you embark on your seminary journey.

Sincerely in Christ,

Thomas Hellams, D.Min.
Interim President
