Celebrating over 170 years of preparing courageous spiritual leaders

For over 170 years we have prepared spiritually adventurous, intellectually daring, and deeply faithful leaders for service to the Church, the academy, and diverse cultures and settings. Over the course of that long history, much has remained constant—our Christian identity and purpose, our Methodist tradition and ethos, our ecumenical spirit and commitment, and our determination to form and equip servant leaders who are ready, willing, and able to lead courageously in challenging times.

Making room in the UMC for the Spirit’s work

“The entirety of United Methodism is about to discover what my seminary now knows: building reciprocal networks of churches, welcoming the full diversity of God’s people, and proclaiming the gospel boldly will be where our resurrection lies.” In a new feature for the Christian Century, President Javier Viera reflects on General Conference, and the future of the Methodist Church.

Garrett Celebrates Three Faculty Achievements

At this year’s commencement, President Javier Viera also celebrated faculty accomplishments, including the promotion and tenure of Rev. Dr. AHyun Lee, a new role for Dr. Débora Junker expanding the Cátedra Paulo Freire at Garrett’s Hispanic/Latinx Center, and the renewal of Dr. Rudy Reyes’ professorship.
