“Even in the first generation, your pioneering founders wanted to do it differently. These people looked for something new and distinctive to do in the field of theological education.”

— Robert Wood Lynn

A Bold New Vision

Committed to meeting the needs of clergy and laity for 21st century ministries

Welcome to The BTS Center, the mission successor to Bangor Theological Seminary. We are a resource for communities of ministry and practice.

We are on a journey, committed to networking, collaboration, and partnerships for mission success and sustainability. We invite you to be a companion. We are evolutionary, adapting to the changing religious and spiritual landscapes we inhabit. We encourage you to grow with us. We are revolutionary, listening for the Spirit of God, and boldly exploring the future landscape of theological education. We ask you to help us discover fresh paths.

We are equipping and supporting clergy and laity for theologically grounded, effective, and faithful 21st Century ministries—in northern New England and beyond. We are The BTS Center. Please join us!
