The Grimké Experience
Robust Theological Training in the Local Church
In Your Context
Because you are studying in your church, mentored by one of your pastors, your seminary education includes, by design, practical and contextual training.
Training at Grimké
Our students are forged in the local church, honed by history’s best theologians, and sharpened in-person by Grimké professors.
As a student, a pastor or leader at your church will mentor you throughout your seminary experience.
Reading & Writing
You will be guided through a reading program to expose you to the best teachers in the history of the church.
In-person intensives provide you with face-to-face learning from professors and with fellow-students.
Grimké Student Reflections
There’s no better way to get a feel for Grimké’s unique environment then to hear from our current students.
Twice a semester, students meet for a three-day intensive in Richmond, VA for:
You’ll receive live, face-to-face instruction from Grimké professors and the chance to learn formally and informally, in class and out of class.
Brotherhood & Fellowship
You’re not in this alone. Intesives provide you the opportunity to join a brotherhood of pastors that extends beyond the classroom and will last a lifetime.
Worship through singing is an integral part of our intensives. Learning more about God leads us to sing together his praises.
Preaching & Devotions
Devotions and chapel worship are led by experienced pastors who are skilled at pastoring pastors and planters through the preached Word.
