The Near East School of Theology (NEST) is an inter-confessional Protestant seminary serving the evangelical churches of the Middle East. The primary purpose of the school is to train pastors and church workers for ministry in the churches and other evangelical organizations in the Middle East. It is also concerned with continuing education for pastors and church workers in active service and with theological education of the laity.
NEST welcomes candidates from other Middle Eastern churches, as well as any person seeking to learn about Protestant theology and faith, irrespective of his or her religious affiliation. Students from beyond the Middle East, who have a special interest in biblical studies against the cultural background of the Middle East, Islamics or Oriental and Orthodox churches, are also welcome.
NEST is a member of the Association of Theological Institutes in the Middle East (ATIME) and co-operates closely with the Fellowship of the Middle East Evangelical Churches (FMEEC) and the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC).
