About Harding School of Theology

Harding School of Theology challenges Christian leaders to deeper faith in God and higher standards of ministry scholarship. Combining academic rigor and interpersonal connections, HST operates in an urban context, allowing students to engage in ministry as they study.

HST is associated with Churches of Christ, part of the American Restoration Movement, and is a branch campus of Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. HST has been equipping ministers on the Cherry Road campus since 1958.

Campus information

The School occupies a beautiful, wooded, 13-acre campus adjacent to one of the largest Christian academies in the city.

Administrative, faculty and advancement offices are housed in the E.H. Ijams Administration Building. This impressive brick structure is a 40-room, three-story Georgian mansion. It was once the home of E.L. King, original owner of the property. The building also has a reception/conference room. The first-floor east wing of the building is used for daily chapel services and is known as Pittman Chapel. The Counseling Center is located upstairs in the west wing of the mansion.

A classroom building (Dr. W.B. West Jr. Center) was completed early in 1978 and includes three classrooms, the Heritage Room, the Hospitality Room, a conference room, a student lounge and an auditorium (divisible into three classrooms) equipped with videotaping facilities for preaching and counseling laboratory work.

The Benson Apartments and the James A. Harding-G.C. Brewer Apartments provide 23 on-campus housing units for both married and single students. Single students may room with up to three other students in a Benson two-bedroom unit or with one other student in a Harding-Brewer one-bedroom unit. (Housing priorities are mailed with each Housing Reservation Form.)

The Fitness Center opened in the summer of 2001 in the south end of the former bookstore. The center is open to all School of Theology students, faculty and staff. The Student Association has arranged a schedule for men and women, which is posted in the center. Along with exercise and weight machines, a shower/dressing room is available.

L.M. Graves Memorial Library was constructed in 1964, and a major wing was added in 1978. The Oliver and Norma Rogers Research Center was completed in 2006.

Harding School of Theology is strategically located in Memphis, Tenn., the 19th-most populous city in the United States and the third-largest in the Southeast. Metropolitan Memphis, with more than 1 million citizens, is a modern cultural, medical and educational center with abundant opportunities for the graduate student to work. Seventy churches of Christ offer help for religious activity and spiritual development.

Memphis not only serves the citizens of western Tennessee but also has become the urban hub of eastern Arkansas, northern Mississippi and southeastern Missouri.

The Graduate School is ideally situated in a beautiful residential section of East Memphis near the corner of Park Avenue and Cherry Road (see map). It is easily accessible to shopping centers and restaurants and is within 30 minutes of downtown Memphis.


HST has housing available on campus for both single and married students. Campus residents must take at least six hours in the fall and spring semesters and three hours in the summer.
