Our institutional values are excellence, service, and trust. The In Trust Center for Theological Schools is a membership organization for seminaries and other institutions of higher education that prepare students for Christian ministry, service, and scholarship. Founded in 1988 and incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1995, the In Trust Center connects leaders to resources through our resource consulting program, through various educational initiatives, and through both online and print publications.

The center is best known for In Trust Magazine, a quarterly periodical for board members, administrators, faculty, and other stakeholders who care about theological education, which offers broad insights into the landscape of theological education and the field's most pressing current issues. The In Trust Center's resource consulting services connect members to external resources that can best serve their unique needs. Resources, which can originate either within or outside the field of theological education, include expert consultants in organizations, peer institutions and leaders, financial help, online materials, books, and periodicals including In Trust Magazine.
