Our distinctive mission centers on the education and development of academic and religious leaders within the church and society, while celebrating and preserving the rich religious and cultural heritage of African Americans, the African Diaspora, and Africa itself. This mission transcends the boundaries of our nation's capital, profoundly impacting our local communities and the world at large.

In these challenging times our world is facing, we believe the need for theologically informed and educated leaders has reached unprecedented heights. We invite you to become an integral part of our vibrant community, where intellectual rigor, a profound dedication to justice and freedom, and an unwavering pursuit of truth converge to create an environment where your theological studies can truly flourish.
