Greetings from the President

Covington Theological Seminary celebrated our thirty-fifth year with the graduation of two hundred and six graduates receiving two hundred and thirteen degrees on July 27, 2012.  These dynamic church leaders returned to their kingdom assignments from as far away as Indonesia, South Africa, Haiti, Barbados, Trinidad, Afghanistan, the West Indies, Hong Kong, and Toronto, Canada.  They returned to the states of Washington, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Maine, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and to our state of Georgia.  Our international extensions celebrated graduates in New Brunswick, Canada, Romania, Nigeria, Ghana, Indonesia, Honduras, and Zimbabwe.  All returned to their place of service following their intensive time of study and equipping, with a fresh anointing, and with a challenge to go forth in His Name to Impact Eternity.  We remain amazed at the opportunities our Living Lord provides for us to "equip the saints for the work of the ministry.”  As you might imagine, these graduation experiences are the most rewarding times of celebration for all of the Covington family.

We are delighted that you would consider Covington to further your theological education. Our commitment is to provide a solid biblical training that is Christ-centered, Bible-centered, and Gospel-centered.  We desire to meet you where you are in your calling and ministry motivations and to design a quality program of study to equip you for kingdom effectiveness and fruitful church ministry.  To get you started, we will assess your ministry goals and educational status and work with you to develop a course of study that will be affordable and will dynamically prepare you to serve our King.

We are committed to the local church and its ministry opportunities as the prime training venue for developing church leaders.  We do not call our students to come away to be trained, but to remain faithful in their present assignment. Our goal, as much as is possible, is to bring Bible College and Seminary training to you.  We partner with local churches both nationally and internationally and involve those pastors and leaders with extensive experience and training in our teaching methodology.  We are not called to build great edifices to evidence our effectiveness, but to build great lives that impact others through the Living Christ.  You are the focus of our prayers and our investment and never buildings and programs.

Our innovative and personalized study plans are designed for our Covington External Studies Programs, Covington E-Course studies, and Covington On-Line Programs of study.  We currently have ten Covington Extension Programs in partner churches around the Southeast and expect two others to open in the next year. You may complete your studies on-line, in your current ministry setting or in the privacy of your home.  Please contact us to consider how a personally designed plan of study could meet your needs.

May our blessed Lord encourage you and strengthen you as you serve Him and consider enrollment in theological studies.  If we may answer any questions or help in any way, please contact us.

Because He Lives,

Dr. Steve Sullivan
