Turner Theological Seminary

The Turner Seminary was established in 1894 as a department of Morris Brown College and became Turner Theological Seminary in 1900 (named in honor of Henry McNeal Turner, then the resident Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church). In 1958, Turner Seminary became a founding constituent of The Interdenominational Theological Center.

The Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC), of which Turner Seminary is one of six constituent schools, is an ecumenical graduate school accredited by the Association of Theological Schools of the USA and Canada and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.  As such, Turner Theological Seminary students, through the ITC, are exposed to an interdenominational, multi-racial faculty and student body and may receive one of six degrees offered.  They include Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Church Music, Doctor of Ministry, and Doctor of Theology in Pastoral Counseling.  Turner Seminary graduates also participate in many areas of Christian ministry within the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Among our notable alumni and alumnae now serving in the African Methodist Episcopal Church as bishops, pastors, professors and chaplains, include but are not limited to; Bishop Adam Jefferson Richardson, Jr., Bishop Preston W. Williams, II, Bishop James Levert Davis, Bishop E. Earl McCloud, Bishop Samuel L. Green, Sr., Bishop John White, and Bishop Julius H. McAllister, all now serving as active Bishops in the African Methodist Episcopal Church.  William Whatley, George Moore, Gregory Eason, Deborah Grant, Jacquelyn Grant, Terence Gray, Michael Mitchell, Leslie White, Vincent Mitchell, Wesley Reid, David Green, Carolyn McCrary, Ammie Davis, and John F.
