From the President

I’m deeply encouraged by your interest in studying at Westminster. We are passionate about educating spiritually strong pastors and leaders. This passion compels us to impart to our students a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures, a careful understanding of the creeds and Reformed confessions, and extensive skill in proclaiming the truth of God.

Our passion for training ministers also drives us to connect with the global church. Our vision for serving the people of God with theologically rich leaders and resources extends far beyond North America. You can help us fulfill this vision by joining our community of students.

I hope to see you soon on campus so I can welcome you in person. Nothing excites me more than knowing the impact of our faculty can reach across the world as we prepare you and your classmates to serve the global church.

— Peter A. Lillback, President
