Eastbrook Church and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS), located in Deerfield, Illinois, have partnered to offer quality, flexible and affordable seminary masters’ level coursework at their TEDS Milwaukee Extension site.
The site offers two convenient locations within the greater Milwaukee Metro area; Eastbrook Church, located in the city of Milwaukee, and Elmbrook Church, located in the western suburb of Brookfield. Students are able to complete a Master of Arts in Theological Studies or a Certificate of Theological Studies at our TEDS Milwaukee extension site while still being involved in ministry, family and career obligations.
Trinity’s mission is to educate men and women to engage in God’s redemptive work in the world by cultivating academic excellence, Christian faithfulness, and lifelong learning.
We are here to model and to engender Christ-centeredness in all that we do. The lordship of Christ should affect and be evident in every aspect of education, relationship, and endeavor at Trinity.
We seek to be a learning community that operates by the ethics and values of the Kingdom of God. The makeup of the community should be a reflection of the breadth and diversity of the family of God. The way we treat people should be consistent with the morals, justice, compassion, humility, and love of our Lord. Interaction with students should both reflect an attitude of service to them as individuals and take advantage of opportunities for mentoring and modeling and personal development.
We value service to the church because we believe that the church is God’s central vehicle to accomplish his work in the world. Our vision for serving the church is a global vision, just as God’s vision for his church is global. A particular value affecting Trinity’s work is to identify and meet the educational needs of the EFCA.
We seek to bring faith, life, and learning to bear on the issues facing our world. Our perspective is one of engagement with culture from a Christ-centered and biblically-rooted foundation. We are committed to high standards of research, scholarship, thinking, and living as a means of preparing students to engage the world and to respond honestly and earnestly to those in a pluralistic society.
