Dean's Welcome

The mission of Beeson Divinity School is to prepare God-called persons to serve as ministers in the Church of Jesus Christ by providing quality theological education from an explicitly evangelical perspective. We aim to do this with joy and passion in a loving community which worships the Triune God and cultivates authentic Christian spirituality.

At Beeson we frequently say that "above all else, we want our students to be men and women of God." Hodges Chapel, where the Beeson community meets for worship, stands at the center of Divinity Hall. It is redolent with symbols of the faith and decorated with beautiful Christian art. Its cross-shaped form reminds us of the centrality of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Its prominence and location at the heart of our building bears witness to the fact that Beeson is not merely a graduate school for the study of theology, but rather a living community of faith and learning whose highest purpose is "to know God and to enjoy Him forever."
