The School

Reutlingen School of Theology (RST) is the institution of theological higher education of the United Methodist Church (Evangelisch-methodistische Kirche) in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.

The student body is diverse and consists of students from various denominations and cultural backgrounds. Women and men are trained theologically and acquire social and personal skills crucial for congregational and missionary work. Spiritual formation is an important part of the school's community and a variety of spiritual exercises are offered. Students thus obtain a wide range of competences for subsequent full- or part-time ministry in church and Society.
