Saint John's distinguished theology faculty form a community of scholars marked by its collegiality and mutual respect. The faculty consider their work as a vocation to serve the church, the students and the wider academic community through teaching, presentations to various groups and publications. Many faculty members work closely with members of the administrative staff, who also serve the church in serving the students and mission of the School of Theology and Seminary.
"Knowledge here [at Saint John's], although debate led to the same perplexities that afflict us all, found an instant antidote to the fragmentation that affects the segmented disciplines in a secular environment. Prayer can be the greatest of ideological acts-it knits up a host of disparate awarenesses into a single, constantly abiding frame of reference."
