Welcome From Chancellor

Dear TTU Student,


We are extremely honored that you have chosen to be part of the Texas Theological University and Seminary family. We consider it a great privilege to be used of God in the training of individuals for greater service of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is our goal to provide a Christ-centered and Bible-directed program of study that will enable every student to be a more effective servant of Christ and blessing to their church in whatever capacity the Lord would have for them. We believe that we have a responsibility from God to do all we can to train you in a local church setting as prescribed in the Word of God. We endeavor to have instructors who can pass on to their students the biblical knowledge and life experience that God has given to them.

It has been the burden and goal of Metropolitan Baptist Church, since the inception of its discipleship ministries to prepare believers to make an impact for Jesus Christ. It is our desire to be obedient to Paul’s admonition to Timothy: “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:2.

It is our promise to you to do our very best to fulfill Paul’s exhortation to commit to you the eternal truth of the Scriptures. It is our exhortation to you to “study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15.

What a great opportunity is ours to make that impact on this world for Christ. I trust that your experience at TTU will be rewarding and something that will groom you for the ministry that God has for you.


For the glory of our Savior,



James Turner

Pastor Metropolitan Baptist Church
