Every community has a culture, a way of being and relating. At A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary we talk openly about our culture because we want to be Christ-like together, and that isn’t going to happen unless we fear the Lord.
“When [people] no longer fear God, they transgress His laws without hesitation.”
— A.W. Tozer
At Tozer, we revere the living God as nothing less than GOD. Thus, our commitment is to love Him foremost and love one another by having an ethos of:
- Reverence, respect, honor, and blessing - from which flow vulnerability, laughter and fun.
- Competence - such that we don't lie when we make mistakes. Rather, we solve our problems.
- Empowerment - Tozer employees are charged to make prayerful decisions in their sphere.
- Anticipation and hope - we ever look to God for supernatural help.
- Prayer, listening, research, and discovery - we are a proactive community.
Our intention is to cultivate our “Tozer culture,” taking seriously our commitment to honor and respect and cheer for one another. If we’re going to be a loving community, then we have to be truthful, respectful, and reverent - ever mindful of the holiness of God. We’re excited because reverence leads to laughter, the right kind of laughter that makes everyone feel alive and included. We want to have fun as we seek the living Lord in community with each other, and we want to give God our best.
“And He will be the stability of your times, a wealth of salvation, wisdom and knowledge;
the fear of the Lord is his treasure.”
— Isaiah 33:6
