The mission of the Urshan Graduate School of Theology shall be to provide training, development, advanced studies, and a research center for men and women of the apostolic faith worldwide to further them for Christian service.
As a member of Christ's body, each of us is called to ministry. If we are not careful we can fall into the trap of thinking of ministry in only the most narrow of terms. Can you discern which of the above is a Foreign Missionary? On a medical mission? Working on behalf of New Beginnings for international adoptions? Can you determine which of these is the most valuable work for God's kingdom or which of these is best defined as Christian service? The answer, of course, is all of the above.
UGST alumni are very diversified in the area of Christian service, and while the fields of ministry may not all be the same, there is one thing all of these ministers have in common: a commitment to training and spiritual formation. Each adopted the model developed by Jesus with His disciples when they took 3 years to absorb teaching, learn to rightly divide the word, assess practical applications and generally be mentored. Peter went on to be a preacher/evangelist. John became a prolific writer. We don't have records of the many venues other disciples may have engaged in, but we can be assured they were prepared, grounded and ready. Is it the right time for you to take heed to the calling within you? It's not too late to apply for the Fall semester!
