Have you been called to global missions or the pulpit? Do you want to develop critical thinking skills and feel more prepared to give an answer to those who ask for a reason why you believe in Jesus Christ?

Housed in the Reade Liberal Arts Center, Taylor’s biblical studies program helps you examine your faith by providing strong faculty who serve as scholars, mentors, and teachers pushing you to think through critical issues in order to be better disciples able to fulfill the Great Commission and teach the Word wherever God places you.
