Whether you are preparing for a career at a Christian high school, Bible college, Christian graduate school, or seminary, it is imperative that teachers are able to think well across a variety of subjects and disciplines. In “The Eminence of Teaching,” Étienne Gilson says, “The good teacher then loves to teach because he loves to impart to his pupils the very best thing there is in him, namely, intellectual life, knowledge, truth. … The highest reward of teaching is the joy of making other minds similar, not indeed to ourselves, but to the truth which is in us.” Having training that integrates theology, philosophy, and apologetics will greatly impact your ability to connect the dots between ideas and help others think well about the various academic subjects they will learn.
Through integrated apologetics-focused Christian education, undergirded with sound philosophy and theology, Southern Evangelical Seminary will equip teachers to form a complete and systematic Christian worldview. This vital training provides the necessary tools you need for effective evangelism and discipleship. These tools can be practically incorporated into your own teaching ministry as you equip your students to proclaim the Gospel and remain steadfast in the truth.
Teachers looking at online programs in theology, philosophy, apologetics, or biblical studies are impressed when they discover how our digital campus experience pushes far beyond the outdated models of asynchronous education most schools still use. Everything we have developed at SES will equip you to engage a culture that is hostile to the Gospel, and you can get this training without leaving your current ministry context.
