Weaving Promise & Practice into Ministry
Every gift to Austin Seminary is put to work right away to support the theological training and the spiritual formation of tomorrow's church leaders.
Institutional advancement efforts have raised nearly $50 million in the last seven years, including the largest gift ($4 million) in the school's history—all in the face of a changing and challenging religious landscape.

We are so blessed to announce that we have completed Weaving Promise & Practice into Ministry: The Campaign for Austin Seminary, raising more than $46 million to ensure the future of theological education in the Reformed tradition at Austin Seminary. Achievements include:
• Eleven full student fellowships (including two for international students), that provide tuition and housing for students with the greatest promise for ministry
• Endowment of the College of Pastoral Leaders, a cohort-based program dedicated to the professional development of clergy
• Three new distinguished faculty chairs in Christian ethics, Reformed theology, and preaching
• New student housing
• Renovation of the existing library into the Mary B. and Robert J. Wright Learning and Information Center
