The Expositors Seminary

The Expositors Seminary Mission & Vision

The purpose of The Expositors Seminary is to magnify the glory of God by serving the local church through training, equipping, mentoring, and affirming men who are called by the Lord Jesus Christ into the ministry of the gospel. Mission Our purpose is accomplished through an educational program within an environment of spiritual fellowship that emphasizes an unreserved commitment to the worship of God, the authority of Holy Scripture, the pursuit of personal holiness, the priority of the local church, and the mission of penetrating the world with God’s truth. Vision The vision of The Expositors Seminary is to provide a theological education based on rigorous exegesis which is presuppositionally rooted and unswervingly committed to the inerrancy, authority, sufficiency, and practicality of the Bible. Such a commitment to biblical exegesis engenders a God-centered theology and sound training methods for gospel ministry. Churches led by men trained in this manner will base their theology firmly on God’s Word, resulting in ministry philosophies that faithfully manifest Christ in the church and the world. Eschewing contemporary trends, TES trains its students with essentially the same core curriculum that historically has marked conservative, evangelical theological education in America. Core Disciplines Our goal is to nurture the student’s proficiency in the following four areas: Expository Disciplines We believe that the primary task of the pastor is to nourish the church “on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine” (1 Timothy 4:6). Therefore, we aim to develop the student’s proficiency in the following areas:

  • Biblical languages
  • Critical exegetical analysis and textual problem-solving
  • Crafting expository sermons
  • The art and passion of preaching

The Expositors Seminary Theological Disciplines

Theological Disciplines Recognizing that a proper theological framework is essential to biblical ministry, the faculty labors to impart:

  • A theology that is exegetically derived, methodologically inductive, and systematically expressed
  • A consistently presuppositional approach to Christian apologetics
  • A sound theological understanding for living the Christian life
  • A doxological vision for the church through her responsibility to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the uttermost part of the earth

The Expositors Seminary Practical Disciplines

Practical Disciplines Knowing that a biblical philosophy of ministry is critical to a local church’s spiritual health, we train our graduates to skillfully apply biblical truth to the needs of the body of Christ. To that end, each student will be challenged in the practice of the following:

  • Pastoral virtue
  • Mature leadership of family and ministry
  • Church government
  • Biblical counseling
  • Duties of the pastoral office, including the carrying out of the ordinances
  • Practical body-life and shepherding
  • Critical thinking

The Expositors Seminary Discipleship Disciplines

Discipleship Disciplines Students will be involved in personal discipleship with mentors who will help them apply biblical principles in the role of pastoral leadership. Through experience and evaluation, the students will cultivate their ability to work through pastoral challenges. Students will be encouraged in the discipline of prayer and alerted to the various dangers that arise from its neglect. These discipleship disciplines will include discussions on:

  • Leadership development
  • Mentoring and training elders
  • Developing and training deacons
  • Administrative skills for day-to-day use in the church
  • Financial and budgeting guidelines within a church context
  • Strategic ministry planning
