Welcome to Brisbane School of Theology. For more than 75 years the college has been engaged in seeing God’s people shaped by His word and serving His world.
Your college experience is designed to be deeply formative. Our faculty are gifted teachers and tenderhearted pastors. Our staff are responsive and eager to assist. Together we strive to support your learning in the context of Christian community. Like the apostle Paul, faculty and staff long, labour and pray to see Christ formed in you: his humility, his servant-heart, his purity, and his commitment to doing his Father’s will.
Our students are constantly exposed to God’s word. It might be in a class, in chapel or in a mentoring conversation. You are urged to listen carefully, explore thoughtfully and respond obediently. We want to develop eyes that see the universe God’s way; hearts that echo His love for the world; feet ready to spread the good news about Jesus. As God’s living and penetrating word goes to work, He opens eyes, shapes hearts and forges commitments.
Some of our graduates will travel overseas with a mission agency; others will pastor God’s people locally; some will train students on a university campus; others will continue in jobs and attend the same church. In the midst of diverse pathways, there is a common theme. Our graduates are equipped to serve: to serve God, to serve His people, to serve the world He created. So our students are prepared for crossing cultures, courageous proclamation, prayerful dependence, loving engagement and the opposition that will inevitably come.
At BST, we never cease calling on God to raise up people for His service. And we ask to be used in the lives of people as they are shaped by His word, so they can serve His world. Will you join us?
