The Four Pillars

For 70 years, Truett McConnell University has provided an experience to students built upon the following four pillars: love the Lord, love His Word, love the Church, and love the lost.

These pillars are at the core of everything we do. Our students live it, our faculty teaches it, and our administration is guided by it. A key biblical principal, we love because God first loved us. Our goal as a University is to teach our students to exemplify this extraordinary love throughout their journey at Truett McConnell and on into their future careers.
