McAfee School of Theology brings Jesse Mercer’s founding vision of providing students with a classical and theological education full circle as it partners with the Georgia Baptist Convention and Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. McAfee shares Jesse Mercer’s concern that churches have pastor-leaders who understand scripture and who can clearly articulate their Christian beliefs. The School attracts students who have looked critically at seminary options and seek a theological education that will best prepare them for ministry in the next century.

Highlight for this Academic Year: McAfee School of Theology, which graduated its third class in May 2001, is on a fast track to full accreditation. Already accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools through Mercer University, McAfee received a very positive review from the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) in the spring of 2001, resulting in candidate status. The ATS accredits approximately 240 seminaries and divinity schools in the United States and Canada. McAfee plans to complete the self-study required for full accreditation this year
