GMNF Funding for seminary education through TEDS

GMNF is providing scholarships to cover the cost of seminary education through Trinity Evangelical Divinity School for its members for certificates (masters level courses that can be used for masters degrees), masters and doctoral programs

Trinity is one of the world's leading theological seminaries and its has been faithful in its doctrinal orthodoxy. The same esteem for biblical authority and inerrancy permeates the school. The impact of TEDS can be seen in many ways. 

Trinity's leadership in academic global Christianity and evangelicalism can be seen through organizations like the Evangelical Theological Society and Evangelical Mission Society. The Evangelical Theological Society is the largest academic society for evangelicals schools in the fields of biblical studies and theology. Its a broad evangelical organization so many Christian schools (also churches and non profit organizations) are represented. This includes the largest and most esteemed ones like Dallas Theological Seminary, Westminster Theological Seminary, Moody Bible Institute, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Liberty University, Fuller Theological Seminary, Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and others. 


Nearly 1/3 (31%) of the Presidents have taught at Trinity at some point in their careers since TEDS was founded in 1963-1964. The listing is below. Tied for second is Dallas Theological Seminary and Wheaton with 8 faculty (14%) elected as President of the ETS since 1963-64. Most of the 270 or so ATS schools have not had a faculty member who was elected by peers to serve as President of the Evangelical Theological Society. Within an organization like the ETS when many Christian seminaries are presented (especially the largest and most renowned schools), Trinity Evangelical Divinity School is most influential.
