Our Vision

A world where people of faith build vibrant communities of God’s love and hope.

Our Role

Knox College provokes:

We challenge followers of Jesus to embrace their call to key responsibilities in the life and witness of Christian communities, and to devote themselves to effective service.

Knox College guides:

We accompany students on journeys of personal assessment and discovery. The Knox experience creates vital self-awareness, fosters personal growth and healing, and leads students to grasp how they will respond to the challenges of various forms of ministry.

Knox College teaches:

We deepen students’ knowledge of Scripture, theology and ministry, sharpen their skills to use that knowledge, elevate their understanding of both the church and the world, and foster in them a desire to act in the Spirit of Christ.

Knox College interprets:

We cultivate the rich life of Presbyterian-Reformed intellectual, theological, and devotional traditions, and we bring Reformed strengths and insights to bear on the work of students, ministry professionals, and scholars.
