Saint Paul School of Theology has a long tradition of integrating experience in ministry with work in the classroom to prepare persons for leadership in the church. Students are expected to integrate their academic study of faith and ministry with their actual experience and practice in a ministry setting. These ministry settings provide contextual education as part of the required curriculum and allow students to experience ministry while they learn. This model helps students integrate theological study with the practice of ministry.
Over 280 students are enrolled at Saint Paul School of Theology on two campuses, the majority of whom are preparing for some form of ministry in the local church.
In general, their backgrounds, ages, denominations, and vocational goals mirror the diversity of the Church. The student body has almost equal numbers of men and women, representing thirty-seven states and several other countries.
While students are predominantly United Methodist, over twenty denominations are represented in the student body each year.
The Greater Kansas City campus and The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection have
formed a groundbreaking collaboration to bring about an enhanced model
of theological education. With each institution sharing their gifts,
students will be able to further integrate their theological education
with real-world, practical ministry experiences. The collaboration will
provide new opportunities for laity, seminary students and clergy. Classes are held in the East Building of Church of the Resurrection at 13720 Roe Ave, Leawood, KS 66224. Faculty and staff offices are near I435 and Roe at 4300 West 109th Street, Suite 300, Overland Park, KS 66211.
Located in the capital city, Saint Paul School of Theology at Oklahoma City University's beautiful campus occupies over seventy-six acres in a diverse and vibrant metropolitan area. The architecture on campus is a pleasing blend of American collegiate, gothic, and functional contemporary.
Almost all students receive financial assistance through scholarships, grants, denominational support, or government loans, with nearly 80% receiving need-based grants from Saint Paul.
