Denver Seminary has challenged me to pursue answers academically and then apply them to my personal and professional life. That has carried over into how I minister as I’m bringing new information and a fresh conviction to everything I do.

We are Guided by Our Core Commitments


In our pursuit of understanding the timeless truths of Scripture, our discussions, deeds and the manner in which we relate to one another are distinctly defined by a spirit of charitable orthodoxy.

As a community, we are committed to being known for relating to one another graciously, regardless of differing viewpoints. Our conversation is marked by compassion and respect and by listening before defending. In such, we foster a learning environment that upholds speaking truth in love as we strive toward our common goal of understanding Scripture and furthering God’s work in our world.

“At the heart of every believer’s calling is the ability to communicate the whole gospel clearly and compellingly. At Denver Seminary, we are commited to graduating students who are convinced that the redemptive power of the gospel and the life-changing truth of Scripture are the basis of ministry in every setting. ”
Dr. Mark Young, PRESIDENT
