Imagine. Discover. Create.

Nash Talking

The McAfee School of Theology offers an integrated program that grounds theological education within the contexts of a strong University, vibrant partner-churches, and engaged community partners. The School’s goal is to nurture the spiritual life and character of students in a community that values authentic scholarship and piety and to equip students for Christian leadership through mentoring, courses, worship, and the integration of scholarship with professional experience. The goal of the theological curriculum flows from the School’s mission statement: 

“The McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University seeks to prepare ministers who inspire the Church and the world to imagine, discover, and create God’s future..”

We achieve this goal by helping students integrate spirituality with service, theological inquiry with prophetic vision, and worship with witness.
