“Why another School?” It is certainly not because there is not enough “Christian” universities, colleges and seminaries in the world. In fact, given the dismal quality and blasphemies of many of these which masquerade as “Christian” schools, there are certainly too many of them. Nor is it because one cannot still find schools and professors within such who genuinely love and fear the Lord – those who tremble before His Word, and realize that they are about a serious task. However, there are certainly not enough such – a point obvious to the spiritually-minded believer who grieves as he views the invasive influence of the world in the evangelical community, an influence especially prevalent in many centers of “higher” Christian education.
However, even among seminaries which prove more faithful than others, there typically exists a great disconnect between the educational institutions and local churches--specifically, that pastors (those called of God to shepherd the Church of God which He purchased with His own Blood [Acts 20:28]) have no voice or influence in "higher Christain Education." This often creates a great disparity between the design of the institution and where the heart of faithful pastors reside.
It is the seminary's conviction that a higher Christian education/discipleship should not be exposure to every new theological fad boasting academic support. A higher discipleship must be rooted in and grow out of the elementary principles of Christ. For a fragmented collection of academic courses at institutions of “higher Christian learning” leaves terrible holes in the educational understanding of even basic theology. The lack of focus upon the great doctrines of the faith in many schools not only produces an inadequate theological foundation, but helps to deceive those with such an education that “they have arrived.”
Furthermore, seminaries and Christian universities are so often designed in a manner which only few can afford. However, School of the Called Seminary has been designed so that cost would not be a hinderance to anyone whom the Lord has called to the ministry.
The seminary has been prayerfully and carefully designed in order to serve as a true school for those whom God has called to the ministry, as well as serving as an arm of the local church through assisting faithful pastors to fulfill their call to disciple their people.
