November 12-14, 2020

New York Theological Seminary (NYTS) was founded in 1900 by Wilbert Webster White as the Bible Teacher's Training College in Montclair. In 1902, the college relocated to New York City and in 1903 became incorporated with the vision to provide theological education for urban communities. 

After 120 years,  we continue steadfastly in our commitment to prepare faith and thought leaders to engage relevant, restorative, and revolutionary ministry.

2020 has been an especially tough year for everyone so we want to come together to give thanks for the work you've helped us achieve.

While all events are free to attend virtually, please consider making a $120 donation in honor of our 120th anniversary. 

Every dollar raised will provide scholarships for our students
