AGTS is a community of seekers and learners bound together by the common cause of Christ. We believe education does not take place exclusively in the classroom, and that community life at AGTS enhances the student’s overall seminary experience.
We strive to provide students with a holistic preparation in keeping with their calling to various forms of ministry in the world. The Student Life Department exists to support the student community by providing services, programs, and activities that contribute to student development in the social, personal, and spiritual as well as academic areas of life.
Services Available to Students
No student is required to disclose a disability. However, any student who anticipates the need for reasonable academic accommodations while attending AGTS must contact Stephen Houseknecht in the Center for Student Success upon admission.
