Theological Center

700 Martin Luther King Jr. SW
Atlanta, GA 30314


The Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC) is the world's premier resource for church scholarship, theological study, research and training for the spiritual, moral and economic empowerment of communities. A consortium of six denominational seminaries, ITC arguably maintains the widest reach into the African American community of any theological institution. The 10-acre complex, contiguous with Atlanta University Center institutions in downtown Atlanta, shares in a vibrant urban setting with the neighboring World Congress Center, CNN Center, the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola. Offering three master's degrees, three dual degrees, and two doctoral programs, ITC's reputation for academic excellence in training leaders draws a diverse student body of over 480 seminarians annually, from 30 states and 13 foreign countries, of whom 48 percent are women. ITC's historic mission builds on a century-old commitment to educate effective clergy like bishops Charles Blake, Eddie L. Long, Claudette Copeland and Walter Kimbrough, whose ministerial outreach addresses the needs of local and worldwide communities. ITC's focus is articulated in its mission statement: "to educate Christian leaders for ministry and service in the Church and the global community." The only United Negro College Fund graduate theological institution, ITC is a national resource, providing leaders to serve with power and passion in the Church, academia and beyond.
