Phillips Theological Seminary is a graduate seminary located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. With strong affiliations with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the seminary was founded in 1906 with the aim to “prepare men and women for varied Christian ministries in church and society.”
The seminary was initially established as the College of the Bible of Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma in 1906. In 1987, it incorporated as a separate institution known as the Phillips Graduate Seminary. Renamed Phillips Theological Seminary in 1995, the seminary moved to Tulsa in 1997 although the present-day Tulsa campus was opened in 2003.
Currently, Phillips Theological Seminary continues to provide a unique brand of theological education that uses an ecumenical approach to denominational formation. Apart from preparing students for a life of ministry, the school also welcomes students who may simply be seeking ways to deepen their faith. The seminary offers Master of Divinity, Master in Theological Studies, and Master of Arts in Ministry and Culture degrees as well as a Doctor of Ministry degree with focus on Pastoral Leadership.
