Message From the President

The march into the 21st century is a journey toward incredible challenges. A future marked by increased worldwide violence, uncertain economies, and the full impact of globalization signals daunting changes for us all. But for the Church empowered and led by the Spirit, the words of Jehovah God recorded by the prophet Isaiah give hope confidence.

“I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, Here am I, here am I.” (Isaiah 65:1, NIV)

The missionary God we serve is going to demonstrate His redeeming power in places we never dreamed possible and through means that will astound us all. At AGTS we anticipate the journey into exciting challenges because the task of developing leaders for this unfolding harvest is why this seminary exists.

AGTS is not engaged in educating students for a good job, success, or social status. We are forming Pentecostal leaders who are able to call people to repentance, create communities that offer a glimpse of what Kingdom life really looks like, and make disciples of all nations.

Our mission gets its impetus from God’s mission.

We want to stimulate, strengthen and develop more Pentecostal leaders to win the world to Christ. The men and women we train embody a hunger for God, integrity of character, confidence in proclamation, and creativity in ministry. We are ready and willing to train Pentecostal leaders for the Third Millennium.

Dr. Byron D. Klaus
President
