Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary is an Anglican, Biblical and Evangelical educational institution. Steeped in a long and rich tradition of providing education to newly freed slaves, the Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary (CMTS) has been a critical institution in the life of the Diocese of the Southeast of the Reformed Episcopal Church and the metropolitan Charleston, South Carolina area.

At Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary we endeavor to provide theological and educational opportunities that enable ministers and lay persons to enhance their religious training by taking courses designed to meet their needs in life and work of the church. The purpose of the Seminary is to give training not only for the “Pastoral Office”, but also for other church vocations.

The Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary Alumni Banquet celebrates graduates, alumni and current students of CMTS. It also serves as a fundraiser where proceeds benefit programming of the seminary.
