Today was our last Thrive Lunch of the spring semester. Through these lunches, we have connected with staff and faculty on a deeper level as well as learned about numerous interesting topics. We look forward to seeing you all at Thrive next fall!
Dr. Sarah Spring spoke on the topic ‘Applying Liberal Arts and Literature to One’s Life and Ministry’.
“Reading improves empathy, critical thinking, and conversation skills, which ultimately help us know how to apply and share God’s word.”

Criswell College had the incredible honor of working alongside the SGA president, Edward Meshell. Meshell stated, ‘I am so grateful for my time as president of the SGA at Criswell College. Together, we have served both students and the institution, shaping an improved student experience. The future looks bright for this organization!’

Thank you, Eddy, for everything you’ve done to help our students grow and facilitate their journey throughout their transformative college career.

We had a fun and exhilarating time with the Criswell family as we gathered in the parking lot to experience the solar eclipse in its totality! Afterward, we enjoyed a time of worship and sang ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’.


Happy Easter Criswell family! 🕊️

The coming together in fellowship of professors and students makes us SO HAPPY! These casual conversations play a crucial role in fostering strong classroom communities. We aspire to continue growing together in knowledge, friendship, and love for the Lord.


Dr. Ty Kieser, Assistant Professor of Theology and Program Director of M.A. in Theological & Biblical Studies and M.A. in Christian Studies, has authored a remarkable study on Christology, drawing specifically from John Owen's theology and advancements in the philosophy of action. The study argues that Owen helps us recover an understanding of Christological agency that is internally coherent and theologically prudent. It clarifies the usage of "agent/agency" in Christological and Trinitarian contexts, while also encouraging Christians to appreciate the trinitarian love of God in Christ's actions and Christ's compassion for his people.

We are proud that PPE students can participate in a society that will provide connections and resources in their respective fields.

We wish we could translate the amount of joy we experienced during our Black History Month Panel. We were inspired by the thoughtful reflections and insightful dialogue offered by our guest speakers, Dr. Clarence Preston, Leroy Fountain, and Dr. Nancy Turner. Let’s work together to foster a community founded on empathy and compassion, embodying the spirit of Christ’s love through genuine listening and mutual respect for one another.
