Artists in Austin seeks to engage the Seminary community with the greater arts community in Austin, honoring both the artists at work on our campus and the artists at work in Austin.

To provide a forum for students of Latinx decent to support each other and build community/network through the sharing of ethnic and religious experiences. As a student-centered organization, the group will provide opportunities to address specific concerns, issues and challenges in the community relating to Latinx within the APTS community. In addition, students will have opportunities to serve the APTS community and also the greater Austin community.
Queer Alliance celebrates the imago Dei in all of God’s children, recognizing God’s creative power in all gender and sexual identities.
Thus, the mission of Queer Alliance is to create a welcoming, supportive, and brave space within the APTS community for LGBTQIA+ persons and allies through fellowship, education, worship, and advocacy both in and beyond the walls of our seminary.
Mission Statement: A threshold takes you from one place into another, when you’re about to start something new, leave something old, or are in transition – you’re also on a threshold. As we stand at the threshold of learning we strive to be spiritual healers to those encountering a threshold in their lives. This group seeks to inform and guide students on the education requirements, volunteer opportunities, current events, and work options in the chaplaincy field.
