Partner with Payne
As the oldest free standing African-American seminary in the world, having been mandated in 1891 by its sponsor, the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AMEC), Payne Theological Seminary’s purpose was to promote education, religion and morality by the education of persons for the Christian ministry and missionaries of the redemption of Africa and foreign lands.
Payne Theological Seminary has produced world renowned ministerial leaders since its inception more than 125+ years ago…and we continue to do so. In order to continue to do so, Payne needs your support. The financial burden that can impact our students is great but does not compare to the service they provide to our communities locally, nationally and internationally. We ask that you continue to support Payne Theological Seminary in order to continue to impact the lives of our students and grow our programs and initiatives for centuries to come.
