What frames your deepest calling?

Dr. Howard Thurman writes: “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Located on the campus of Northwestern University, along the shores of Lake Michigan in the outskirts of Chicago, Garrett-Evangelical strives to be a place where people can dive deeply into theological education with their minds, hearts and hands, in order to become more of who God has called them to be.

Our mission is to prepare skilled, bold and articulate leaders who share the transforming love of Jesus Christ.  We invite you to come and see for yourself how we honor our commitment to 1) critical and creative reasoning, 2) spiritual formation, and 3) prophetic participation in society, both in community with one another and in the world around us.
