Churches & Ministries

TEDS and TIU values its strong relationships with churches across the country and around the world. We offer ministry placement services to our students, church match and partnership grants, and more.

Church Fair

Each year, TIU invites area churches to come and meet our new students during their New Student Orientation. We are committed to seeing our community active in the church while in school.

We would love to have a representative from your church attend and give you the opportunity to connect with our incoming college, graduate, and seminary students.

Denomination EXPO

Denomination EXPO is held each October. Representatives from many denominations come to TEDS to meet with students who are interested in ministry placement in these traditions. In recent years, representatives from Presbyterian, Covenant, Methodist, Baptist, Full Gospel, Evangelical Free, Mennonite, Assemblies of God, Anglican, and other denominations have attended. For more information, contact our Placement Office.


Speakers’ Bureau

The Speakers’ Bureau at TEDS is a resource for churches and Christian organizations to access speakers for Sunday worship services, conferences, seminars, and retreats. TEDS faculty, alumni and current students are available to speak, to provide pulpit supply, and to serve as interim pastor.
