Programs of Study | Knox Theological Seminary


Knox Programs are designed for those faithful men and women called to lead and serve the church of God, who are apt to teach, passionate about the glorious gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and will to boldly proclaim it throughout the earth.

We seek to train pastors and ministry leaders who will pray like Abraham did for Sodom, who will weep like Jeremiah did for Jerusalem, and who will be stirred in their inner hearts to bring the Gospel to Athens like Paul. Our programs of study are not for the faint of heart; we seek those with virtue and vision, who desire to lead boldly and serve generously.

Our graduates minister in a wide range of settings, from pastors and academics to teachers and laypersons. With the help of Almighty God, we are training a generation to lead, teach, and serve the church of the King of kings, to His eternal glory!


Master of Divinity

The Knox Master of Divinity Program is a professional degree program that prepares students for pastoral ministry. We seek to shape whole persons to communicate the gospel and demonstrate its implications in everyday life. Pastors and church leaders must be biblically saturated, theologically discerning, and contextually sensitive Christians; to that end, the curriculum focuses on three major areas: biblical, theological, and practical ministry studies.

Certificate Programs

The Certificate programs at Knox Theological Seminary are specially designed for individuals who are interested in pursuing theological training without the commitment to a master’s-level program. The programs are well suited for lay leaders in the church, missionaries who require a year of formal theological training, or individuals desiring to both broaden and deepen their understanding in the Christian faith. All Certificate programs can be completed fully online.
