Academic Office


The Academic Office is central to campus life at HGST. Our Academic Dean, Dr. David Capes, provides direction for the six degree programs: Master of Divinity, Master of Theological Studies, Master of Arts in Counseling, Master of Arts in Missional Leadership, Master of Arts in Spiritual Direction, and Doctor of Ministry, and three related certificate programs.

In addition, the Academic Office oversees the resident and adjunct faculty, faculty committees, the Academic Catalog, and commencement exercises.

For degree program questions, students should begin by contacting their advisors. For immediate assistance, if advisor is unavailable, contact Dr. Becky Towne or Dr. David Capes.
