Saint Paul School of Theology is a school of higher learning in Kansas City, Missouri and is one of 13 seminaries of the United Methodist Church. In addition to the downtown Kansas City campus, Saint Paul School of Theology at Oklahoma City University began offering courses in September 2008. Each year, more than 300 degree-seeking students are enrolled at Saint Paul, the majority of whom are preparing for some form of local church ministry. The student body has almost equal numbers of men and women, representing 37 states and several other countries. While most students are United Methodist, over 20 denominations are represented in the student body each year. Saint Paul's theology is perhaps best described as "moderate" relative to the overall body of views that encompass the United Methodist Church in the United States.
In a money-saving initiative, the school plans to move its facilities to Leawood, Kansas for the Fall of 2013. Plans are for the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection to serve as its new location.
