2023 Strategic Plan
Asbury Theological Seminary has launched their 2023 Strategic Plan. President Timothy C. Tennent explains, “A plan like this should be viewed as an architectural drawing. This is a conception or vision of what we like to build toward.” After two years of refining revisions, input from the community, and final approval by the Board of Trustees, Asbury Seminary is putting their plan in motion.
The 60-page document lists 10 main overarching goals. Within each main category, it documents how the Seminary plans to achieve those goals in time for the centennial celebration in 2023. The strategic plan is missionally focused, displaying a commitment to the global church. It focuses on serving emerging ethnic churches, therefore Asbury will pursue a diverse, missionally oriented student body. It displays a commitment to the laity and to equipping pastors through life-long learning. It lays out a plan to help the Seminary strengthen their economic model and develop their network of support. Additionally, it focuses on theological education that is faithful to God’s word and personal and community formation.
