What's the history of TXUT?


Texas University of Theology has over 25 years of equipping leaders. It's purpose is to bring theological education and ministerial training to people who are unable or unwilling to attend a centralized higher education institution. While TXUT admires and endorse the efforts of traditional Bible Colleges and Seminaries, it's deeply committed to the concept of training people within the walls of their own local church, and to the provision of excellent teaching material and study options for Christians everywhere. Their function is simply to add a theological and academic resource that few churches can viably provide, while leaving the practical training in ministry to the local pastor. Their goal is to not just to impart knowledge, but rather to teach principles of sound interpretation, showing people how to do their own research, and how to apply truth to life. A final goal is the ultimate activation of men and women into effective Christian service, in any environment to which he or she may be called to minister.
