Reinventing Theological Education
B. H. Carroll Theological Institute is reinventing theological education in innovative, creative ways that make ministerial training more relevant, practical, effective, as well as affordable and accessible to all Christian workers. Using a nexus of scholars, teaching churches, and learning centers, Carroll Institute mobilizes the Body of Christ to minister and serve an increasingly lost and needy world. With a focus on the Great Commission, this approach commits a minimum of resources to buildings and a maximum of resources to intellectual capital and learning technologies. It operates from a center in Irving, Texas where professors (Senior Fellows) with a depth and breadth of experience in theological disciplines plan curricula. They also teach and coordinate the work of academically qualified scholars (Resident Fellows) in teaching churches across the nation and ultimately around the world. Carroll Institute uses a broad range of media to connect with the churches and provide theological education that is biblically based and practically oriented.
