The Master's Seminary

The Master's Seminary exists to advance the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping godly men to be pastors and trainers of pastors. Our faculty and academic programs are rooted in the authority of Scripture and the belief that men should be trained to exposit the Word of God in a local church environment.

In 1977, Talbot Theological Seminary helped bring partial fruition to that goal by initiating an extension center on the campus of GCC.
