Drew Theological School

Draw the Circle Wide

We are looking for believers, activists, seekers, thinkers, counselors, preachers, teachers, poets and dreamers who value thinking and action.

  • Commit to courageous Christianity.
  • Dive into ecological and social justice.
  • Inspire the church, the neighborhood, the city, the world.

The next generation of faith leaders needs imagination and courage to constructively engage the challenges and opportunities of our age. This is built into how we do things. No matter your degree program, a Drew Theological School education includes interdisciplinary courses that demand out-of-the-box thinking, apprenticeship training that addresses real-world issues and modes of learning that promote adaptability and innovation.

In the United States, we celebrate the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today. King observed three major evils of society in his time - racism, poverty, and war - and these are still evident today.

On Wednesday, join Drew sociology professor Dr. Kesha Moore as she analyzes King’s “Letters from a Birmingham Jail.” Her talk at 5:30 p.m. EST is entitled, “From a System of Fear to a System of Care: What Prisons Teach Us About Love, Community, and Justice,” and registration can be found in Drew Today emails.

Rev. Dr. King, we thank you for the work you called us to do. May we take up the challenge to continue these tasks set before us.
