Welcome to Turner Theological Seminary
Preparing A New Generation of Leaders For Ministry In The 21st Century
Welcome to the Turner Theological Seminary’s Home Page. I’m pleased you have an interest in theological education at Turner Theological Seminary on the campus of the Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Our mission at Turner Theological Seminary is to prepare committed persons for the ministries of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Since 1894, men and women have been prepared for ministry as Bishops, Presiding Elders, Pastors, Chaplains, Educators, and Scholars. Turner Theological Seminary is an affiliate Graduate School of Theology of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and a Constituent school at the ITC.
I invite you to peruse our website for more information.
