Virtual Campus Tour
Welcome to PTS The virtual campus tour is designed to acquaint you with the campus and the people who will support your educational experience. It will also introduce you to our community….one community of students, faculty, and staff from many places who value education for ministry and strive to live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ministerial Formation PTS is a diverse ecumenical community with around 20 denominations represented in our student body. Differences in theological perspective are valued, while students are also challenged to think critically about what they believe. Ministerial formation directors provide students with connections to their denominational groups, enabling them to develop ministry identities consistent with their traditions, while learning to engage in ecumenical dialogue. Currently, we have ministerial formation directors for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the United Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church (USA), Baptists, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Unitarian Universalist Association. Click the following for video greeting from one of our formation directors: John Imbler
