Knox prepares leaders to minister in a 21st-century context by emphasizing the application of Scripture to all areas of life, providing exceptional academic instruction, in the tradition of the Reformed faith, as well as guidance for spiritual growth. Attention is directed to the inner life of the pastor/teacher as well as an emphasis on community, blending the theoretical and practical in an urban environment. We seek to become a blessing to the city where God has placed us, bringing spiritual, cultural, and community renewal to South Florida.
Planted in sunny Fort Lauderdale, in the sixth largest urbanized area in the U.S., Knox has a distinct urban opportunity. Miami is one of the most unchurched cities in the country with one of the highest concentrations of poverty, as well as wealth, since South Florida is home to one of the world’s most important financial centers. As a hub for the art world, the fashion world, and a business axis to more than 1400 multinational corporations, South Florida is cosmopolitan, creative, dense, and diverse. Recognized as the gateway to Latin America, ministry in South Florida now will impact Latin America and many American cities with growing Hispanic populations for generations to come.
Knox rests in a truly international environment. Consider how your seminary education will be strengthened by our outstanding faculty in this rich, culture-shaping context. Prepare yourself realistically for the kind of ministry that will be required in the future. What better place to live, work, study, and minister in the earthly city in anticipation of the heavenly city that is to come?
