Kansas City, MO Campus

Kansas City, the historic and primary location of NTS, is a thriving midwestern metropolitan area with a population of over 2 million. Interstate highways and Kansas City International Airport make it easily accessible. Its expanding industry and commerce provide work opportunities. Its educational and cultural institutions offer a wide variety of enriching advantages, among them being the University of Missouri at Kansas City, other Protestant seminaries, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Kansas City Public Library and its branches, and the Harry S. Truman Library.

Kansas City is a city of churches that give abundant opportunity for observation and experience relating to the whole field of contemporary church life. It is also well known as a national convention center, and many denominational conferences and assemblies take advantage of the city’s commodious facilities. The Church of the Nazarene has more than 60 congregations in Greater Kansas City where students may worship and work in various fields of Christian service.

For Nazarenes around the world “Kansas City” has been a virtual synonym for the International Headquarters of the Church of the Nazarene. The Nazarene Publishing House, one of the largest religious publishers in the United States, is located in Kansas City  several miles north of the Seminary. In September 2008, the general offices of the denomination relocated to a new “Global Ministry Center” in Lenexa, Kansas. Those who are planning to minister in the Church of the Nazarene will find no better opportunity to understand and sense the mission, the dynamic, and the programs of the denomination than can be found at NTS in Kansas City.

The main Seminary complex consists of the administrative unit, with the chapel located in the south wing, and the library building. The offices, classrooms, and lounge are in the administrative part of the building. There is a small prayer chapel on the third floor of the administrative section to provide a place for private meditation and also for small groups to have prayer meetings.

The King Conference Center provides housing for students registered in the Doctor of Ministry program and other educational programs offered by NTS. The Commons houses the campus store, coffee shop, and student center. NTS owns 12 houses adjacent to the campus which it rents to current students and employees.
