Letter from the President

Welcome to Veritas Evangelical Seminary! Choosing the right learning environment is an important decision. After all, ideas do have consequences. As an inter-denominational seminary we strive to offer a well-rounded educational and spiritual experience which is grounded in the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Scriptures. Our uncompromising commitment to the classical doctrines of Christianity will be readily apparent in a world in which these biblical truths are increasingly being challenged, reinterpreted, or even discarded altogether. For this reason, our courses are fashioned to appeal to a broad base of evangelical Christians seeking an answer to the unorthodox, modern, and postmodern theologies influencing the church today.

Our faculty has been carefully selected to accomplish these educational goals, each having a passion for proclaiming God’s truth and defending the faith in a cultural milieu that is becoming increasingly hostile to the Christian worldview. With nearly 200 books and hundreds of articles published, some of which are standard textbooks in seminaries and Bible colleges across the country, our teachers offer students a wealth of experience accompanied by humility that has been tested by time and practice through decades of research, writing, and peer review. What is more, our faculty is firmly committed to the great commission of making disciples, teaching them not only the “what” and “how” of the Christian faith, but also “why” we believe.

Each graduate program is designed to equip you with the knowledge, character, and skills necessary to achieve your goals as a Christian leader. The majority of courses will be offered in convenient one-week modular formats in a relaxed environment which meet Monday through Friday in the evening, and all day Saturday, to accommodate working adults. In addition, external studies courses are available for those who cannot attend the resident program or who seek to supplement their resident studies.

Whatever your course of study may be, the completion of your time at VES should greatly enhance, first and foremost, your relationship, appreciation, and worship of the Lord Jesus Christ. Moreover, you should expect to see greater boldness and effectiveness in your ministry, evangelism, and defense of the faith to the glory of God. My hope and prayer is that your studies will help you intimately comprehend and experience the love God has for His saints.

Until the Whole World Hears!

Dr. Joseph Holden, President
