Tyndale Theological Seminary is a missionary institution in two senses. First, all the faculty are missionaries who raise their own support in order to teach here. Our faculty and staff are well experienced and successful in this process, which, in turn, allows the school to offer scholarships to needy students from all around the world. Second, Tyndale is a school with a mission to equip our students to reach the world. Tyndale was founded in 1985 in order to train and equip future generations of evangelical pastors, teachers and missionaries. Our alumni come from eighty-one nations, and in any given year, there will be students from over 20 countries. It is a great place from which to make a global impact!
