Gammon Theological Seminary was founded in 1883 by the Methodist Episcopal Church. The Methodist Episcopal Church was divided into northern and southern wings. Sixteen years before the southern states seceded, the southern Annual Conferences withdrew from the denomination and formed the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The Methodist church split in 1844 because of Slavery.
Gammon is the world's premier resource for black church scholarship and faith-based solutions to the spiritual and socio-economic challenges confronting the African American community.
