Records of America’s mainline Protestant denominations show that the Presbyterian Church (USA) wins the endowment award, just short of $2B total across nine seminaries. Remove Princeton Theological Seminary‘s endowment ($1.038B, more than four times higher than its closest competitor, UMC’s Candler School of Theology, with $225M), and the number shrinks to just over $900M. The Southern Baptist Convention, though, easily posts the highest number of students across its seminaries. Its seminaries hold three of the top five spots on the list of schools with the most students enrolled full-time. For more information, see the charts below.
