AGTS is a community of seekers and learners bound together by the common cause of Christ. We believe education does not take place exclusively in the classroom, and that community life at AGTS enhances the student’s overall seminary experience.
We strive to provide students with a holistic preparation in keeping with their calling to various forms of ministry in the world. The Student Life department exists to support the student community by providing services, programs, and activities that contribute to student development in the social, personal, and spiritual as well as academic areas of life.
New Student Orientation
New students will be notified via email with the date and specific details of their New Student Orientation. Students who begin their studies during the summer semester should plan to attend the fall New Student Orientation. “Building Maps” (PDF provided as an attachment). Note: Each new student will be added to the AGTS 101 Course, on Course Commons.
Each student meets with the Student Life Coordinator once during each of their first two semesters and then once per year for each year after that. Make an appointment by calling the Student Life office at (417) 268-1081.
The Write Place, located in Trask Hall 202, is a free service offered to students. They provide coaching and support to help students through the writing process.
