From the Dean

Dean McAfee School of TheologyThe faculty and staff of the McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University are vitally interested in you. We are eager to hear of the ways in which you have experienced God’s leading in your life, and your commitment to serving Christ in ministry to others. In order to help you prepare for a vocation in ministry, the McAfee School of Theology offers a fully integrated program of study that places theological education in the twin contexts of a strong university and vibrant partner-churches.

Our hope is to nurture the spiritual life and character of students in a community that values both authentic scholarship and authentic piety and to equip students for Christian leadership through personal mentoring, challenging courses, community worship, and the integration of scholarship and experience in the practical tasks of ministry.

The McAfee School of Theology has a great deal to offer: the recognition of a highly respected university; the excitement of being in Atlanta; a faculty of first-rate scholars who are committed Christians and committed to a "community" style of education; a network of partner-churches; an innovative, fully-integrated curriculum; and all of this at a highly affordable cost.
