Institute for Theological Studies at St. Margaret's
The Institute for Theological Studies at St. Margaret's (ITSSM) is a ministry of St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, established for the benefit of the community and the wider church. Our overarching aim is to promote "faith with understanding." To that end, we hope that our Institute can become a weighty theological presence in our city of Little Rock, and a resource for intellectual and spiritual vitality in the Episcopal Church.
