Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary

Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary

Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary (GGBTS) is one of six official Southern Baptist seminaries. The main campus is located in Mill Valley, California, and the seminary enjoys beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay and the mild weather of southern Marin County.

History

GGBTS was originally founded in 1944 in Oakland, California, at the Golden Gate Baptist Church. The seminary was moved to Berkeley shortly thereafter. After some time the seminary moved again and in 1959 it held its first classes at its current main campus in Mill Valley. Since its establishment GGBTS has expanded to include several satellite campuses in addition to the Mill Valley site. Regional campuses can be found in Brea, California; Vancouver, Washington; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Centennial, Colorado and total aggregate enrollment stands at roughly 1,100 students. The seminary is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools [http://www.ats.edu/member_schools/goldgate.asp] and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges [http://www.wascsenior.org/wasc/MI_Directory.htm#G] .

Leadership

Dr. Jeff Iorg is the current seminary president.

Educational Focus

As a theological seminary, GGBTS offers a variety of theological degrees. Among these are the Master of Divinity (M.Div.), the Master of Theological Studies (MTS), the Master of Theology (Th.M.), the Master of Arts in Educational Leadership (MAEL), and the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.). Beginning in 2007, GGBTS began offering a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Biblical studies with plans to expand the program to include theology and Church history.

Golden Gate focuses on multicultural and cross-cultural ministry to a significant degree. As a result, a large number of Golden Gate students become missionaries working with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

There is also an on-site preschool, Golden Gate Academy, that serves as a lab school for the seminary.

Notable Alumni

Trivia
