Donor: Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation

The Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation is the successor of the former Presbyterian Theological Seminary at Omaha. It began in 1891 when the Reverend John Gordon of Omaha and the Reverend Stephen Phelps of Council Bluffs met to explore the possibility of founding a seminary in the area. At the time, the only Presbyterian seminary between the Mississippi River and the Pacific coast was at Dubuque, Iowa. Dubuque Seminary specialized in the training of ministers for foreign-speaking congregations. Churches in the West found it difficult to attract ministers when the nearest Presbyterian theological schools were more than five hundred miles away. Gordon and Phelps gathered a group of interested elders and church leaders together and ultimately gained the approval of the General Assembly to establish a seminary at Omaha, Nebraska.
