I would like to personally welcome you to the Pilgram Marpeck School of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics at Truett McConnell University. Pilgram Marpeck was an engineer and scientist turned Anabaptist theologian. His “usefulness” allowed him to weave his influence through south Germany’s Anabaptist movement and to distinguish the essentiality and authority of the New Testament for all believers. His influence was seemingly uninhibited by the authorities and state church1.
It is the desire of Truett McConnell University’s Marpeck School to honor the memory and accomplishments of Pilgram Marpeck as the engineer/scientist and theologian that he was, by training up a generation of new scholars with impeccable skills and unwavering faithfulness. To underscore this goal, you will find faculty who are committed to your future, steadfast for the Lord, and deeply thankful for the scientific and theological giants that have come before us. We hope you will find that it is your time to step up and stand upon the shoulders of giants.
Please let us know how the Pilgram Marpeck School of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics can collaborate with you to accomplish God’s call upon your life and career.
