  • Title: President's Welcome
    Descriptive info: Welcome to Christian Theological Seminary!.. In the heart of a continent, a city.. In the heart of that city, a school.. And in the heart of that school, a community of disciples, gathered around a treasury of knowledge and know-how, skills and ideas, poetics and practices as old and as eternally new as the adventure of learning itself.. Make no mistake, this is one of the most exciting, potentially life-changing places you ll ever visit.. In fact, once you look at it in the right way, you ll see it s less a collection of programs and classes and personalities and more a kind of cathedral, a mansion with many rooms, chapels, and passageways to search out and explore.. In this sense, each page on this site is a door, a threshold to a world you ve yet to travel.. And accordingly, each faculty photo is an introduction to a personal tour guide, someone who s been there and can show you around though be advised, there s still no telling what the two of you will find around any given corner.. On these journeys, even the guides discover something new on every trip.. We specialize in thresholds and surprises, new worlds and  ...   broken beauty.. As the New Testament makes quite clear, Jesus is the kind of teacher who often points toward others: to a poor widow, for example, who embodies generosity; or an ancient enemy, who models mercy; or a child, who shows what it means to enter the kingdom of God.. And so to do this kind of discipleship well, each one of us needs a community a circle of fellow disciples, yes, but also a wider place where we can learn from widows and enemies and children and countless others.. We need diversity in every sense: racial, cultural, economic, personal, generational, and theological.. We need vibrant and challenging worship to put our learning in its proper context.. And we need a broad, broken, beautiful society in which, and for which, we do our work.. We need, in other words, a school in the heart of a city, a city in the heart of a continent, and a continent in the heart of God s good creation, the whole wide world that so desperately needs new leaders: disciples called to learn, learners called to serve.. We re already looking forward to getting to know you better.. Matthew Myer Boulton.. President and Professor of Theology..

  • Title: History + Mission
    Descriptive info: The mission of Christian Theological Seminary is to form disciples of Jesus Christ for church and community leadership to serve God's transforming of the world.. TO THIS END WE:.. celebrate.. the presence of the risen Christ in Word and Table;.. welcome.. into partnership all who seek God's truth, love, and justice;.. cultivate.. the.. virtues, passions, and practices of Christian leadership;.. reflect.. critically on the sources of Christian understanding in scripture, the traditions of the ecumenical church, cultures, and experience; and.. engage.. the spiritual and moral issues facing the human community.. HISTORY.. Christian Theological Seminary traces its origins to 1855 and the founding of North Western Christian University in downtown Indianapolis.. The new school s primary mission was to train ministers for the Disciples, a frontier movement emphasizing Christian unity and lay leadership.. But one thing distinguished NWCU from other Disciples schools at the time, most of which were in slave-holding states: its commitment to abolitionism.. By 1877, the school had been re-named Butler University in honor of its most celebrated leader and most generous financial supporter, Indianapolis lawyer and abolitionist Ovid Butler.. Through the early years of the 20.. th.. century, Butler began offering a more diverse undergraduate curriculum, and the Butler School of became one of many programs of study in the increasingly secular institution.. As the growing university moved to its present location on Indianapolis near northside, the School of Religion grew as well, adding a graduate program in 1924 thReligion anks to the generous financial support of Disciples businessmen William G.. Irwin and Hugh Th.. Miller, as well as Disciples minister Z.. T.. Sweeney.. The founding dean of the Butler School of Religion, Frederick Doyle Kershner, charted a unique course.. At a time when American Christianity was sharply divided between liberalism and fundamentalism, he sought a middle ground.. He opened the School of Religion to persons of all denominations, persons of color, and women, and welcomed a Jewish rabbi  ...   demand the highest standards of scholarship from students, focussing intentionally on developing their lives of faith.. In 1966, under the leadership of President Beauford Norris, CTS settled into its present location, just south of the Butler University campus.. Since its establishment as a free-standing institution, Christian Theological Seminary has adapted to meet the changing needs of both church and society.. In the 1970s and 1980s, Veteran Disciples missionary and ecumenist T.. J.. Liggett led the school as it developed a truly global perspective on Christian faith.. A new faculty began to emphasize the role of social science in the study of religion and to promote active engagement with pressing social concerns of the day.. An innovative field education program was introduced as the seminary's understanding of ministry expanded to include work in social service agencies, government, and other non-congregational settings.. In the early 1990s, the seminary launched several degree programs in psychotherapy, and began operating a counseling center that serves both as a training center for students in those programs and as a much-needed resource for the Indianapolis community.. Under the leadership of Presidents Richard Dickinson and Edward Wheeler, the last twenty-five years have witnessed the intentional diversification of the seminary community, and now enjoys one of the most diverse communities of any seminary in the nation.. While nurturing strong, formal ties to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the seminary strives to live out the denomination s historic commitments to Christian unity, inclusiveness, and reconciliation.. The latest chapter in the CTS story began in 2011 with the installation of the seminary s sixth president, Matthew Myer Boulton.. An ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and a scholar with degrees from both Harvard and the University of Chicago, Boulton joins the more than thirty denominations and religious traditions represented among the administration, faculty, staff and student body of today s CTS, a vibrant, growing community of faith and learning..
