Walking Boldly into the Future – Introducing Kairos University

BLI School of Ministry is excited to be included as a legacy partner in the launch of Kairos University, a first-of-its-kind global network with students from thirty countries spread out across six continents. Kairos University will create fresh expressions of affordable, accessible, relevant, and faithful theological education, and BLI is thrilled to be a part of this mission along with Sioux Falls Seminary (South Dakota), Taylor Seminary (Edmonton, Alberta), Evangelical Seminary (Pennsylvania), and Houston Graduate School of Theology (Texas).

The vision for Kairos University came to life in 2014 when the Kairos Project was first introduced. In spring 2020, we had the opportunity to become a legacy partner in Kairos and collaborate with other like-minded schools to leverage Kairos to offer affordable, accessible, relevant, and faithful theological education around the world. The launch of Kairos University is the next step in that vision. We are excited to walk boldly into this future with our partners.

Kairos University views theological education as a system of interconnected and interdependent parts. Through its global network, nearly 50 different partner organizations are working together to steward followers of Jesus who flourish in their vocations for the sake of the world. 

As a global network of theological education, Kairos University provides a unique opportunity for students to enroll from anywhere in the world. Students deepen their roots in their local contexts by working with mentors and crafting an educational journey that encourages face-to-face interaction in their communities. In addition to being accessible from anywhere, the educational experience provided by Kairos University is intimate and personal. All around the world, students, mentors, professors, and partners within Kairos University are seeing God move in exciting ways every day. 

Over the next few months as we boldly step into the future, more exciting developments will be shared. To learn more about this venture or ask questions, please email Greg Henson (ghenson@sfseminary.edu) or Gary Bailey (gbailey@bli4u.org).
