Atlanta offers a unique opportunity for seminary students to engage many diverse cultures and people groups, offering hands-on learning opportunities on par with the largest cities in the world for a fraction of the cost.  As one of the best places to live in America and the only city in the United States listed as a “Top Destination for 2011”, in Atlanta you are within 30 minutes of approximately 3,500 churches, the world’s largest aquarium, 4 professional sports teams, the headquarters of 16 Fortune 500 companies, 54 public parks, and the tallest skyscraper in the United States outside NYC and Chicago.  In Atlanta, you are less than an hour from 4,000 ft mountains, 2 hours from 80% of the United States’ population, 3 hours from the Atlantic Ocean, and 18 hours from India.  You are also in a city with ample ministry opportunities, many founded by native Atlantans who recognized the escalating problems caused by large urban development.  There are not only urban and national ministry opportunities within which to serve His Kingdom, but also international missions agencies to explore a call to the unreached or de-Christianized.  As one of the top 50 global cities in the world, Atlanta offers seminary students an educational setting that extends far beyond the classroom.
