ETS, founded in 1972, is an evangelical and interdenominational educational institution dedicated to training Christian pastors and lay workers. Like most seminaries in Europe, ETS provides undergraduate training to pastors and also has graduate programs for pastoral development. Students attending the seminary represent eighteen countries and nine denominations. With an extensive library and status as one of the few accredited Protestant seminaries in Eastern Europe, ETS remains a flagship evangelical school for both Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. ETS also serves as headquarters for the AGAPE Humanitarian Ministry. Pastor Steve Paulus teaches at ETS at least once a year.
