“At Northeastern Seminary, I developed my ability to think critically about theology from Genesis to Revelation, to the early church, to the Reformation, but also for a life of ministry today. It gives you the chance to think about theology from a broad perspective.” ~Torrance Jones, Theological Studies, M.A. ’15
