Tozer Faculty

“Scholars can interpret the past; it takes prophets to interpret the present.”

— A.W. Tozer

Tozer faculty are disciples first, scholars second. Every faculty member at A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary is expected to live as a disciple-making role model for students. At Tozer, it is recognized that intellectual formation inevitably works in tandem with spiritual formation; the two cannot be separated in practice. In stark contrast to a Wissenschaft model of higher education in which both teacher and student focus on their discipline without regard for who they are before God, Tozer Seminary uses a Christian paideia model that calls for teacher and student alike to be accountable in their character as they do their scholarship.
