Our Shared Values


Our Shared Values

Drew Theological School faculty and staff are fully committed to embody the school’s mission within the curriculum development and all student learning outcomes.

Drew Theological School Mission

Rooted in the Methodist tradition of innovative and bold interpretations of Christian theology and spiritual practices, we empower creative thought and courageous action to advance justice, peace and love of God, neighbor, and the earth.

Our faculty prepare alums to be leaders who work for the justice and love central to a progressive understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As theologically reflective practitioners they are able to…

  • INTERPRET texts and contexts critically, creatively, and faithfully 
  • EMBODY a vision of radical personal and social holiness
  • MOBILIZE diverse communities for effective personal, communal, societal wellbeing, and transformation 
  • And be IMPROVISATIONAL in all things for the flourishing of the world

Drew’s faculty firmly believes that engaging the world’s challenges and struggles for social and ecological justice is critical to and integrated throughout the student learning experience
