About CAL GRAD
The purpose of California Graduate School of Theology is
to prepare men and women for faithful ministry in Church and
society. Committed to a learned ministry for church and society,
the school welcomes qualified students without regard to denomination,
race, sex, or physical disabilities. The school seeks to strengthen
and deepen the spiritual life of students, and through classroom
and other academic activities, to engage them in critical
discussions about the Bible and theology with probing questions
regarding faith and life in today's world
With these goals in mind, California Graduate
School of Theology was established in 1969, upon the conviction
that God has acted redemptively in human history. Since its
founding, the school has attracted students from over fifty-three
denominations worldwide. They are men and women holding graduate
degrees who are denominational leaders, psychologists in Christian
counseling, administrators and faculty members of colleges and
universities, pastors of prominent growing churches, evangelists,
and radio-television personalities.
The graduates of California Graduate School
of Theology now number over 6,000. Many California Graduate
School of Theology's graduates are filling important places
of ministry as professors, pastors, missionaries, administrators,
and directors of Christian Education and Youth Departments.
All graduates of the school are members of the Alumni Association.
