Promoting Knowledge, Understanding, and Practice

Study for a Higher Purpose

“Austin Grad provides two things of great value to a lifelong student of Scripture who hopes to have found a few things worth sharing with others: first, a community of like-minded fellow scholars and teachers, ready to learn from Scripture, from great teachers of the universal church past and present, from one another, and from students and other members of the Austin Grad family; and second, a personally and intellectually diverse community of students with whom to share what one has learned. None of this would exist without a supportive community of leaders, servants, and friends, for all of whom I give thanks to God through our Lord Jesus Christ in the faith, hope, and love of the Holy Spirit. “Faculty Member Jeffrey Peterson, Ph.D.
