A school with deep roots in the upper Midwest and an enduring dedication to ecumenical education, United was established in 1960 by the United Church of Christ through the merger of Mission House Seminary of Plymouth, Wis., and Yankton School of Theology in Yankton, S.D.

Mission House, the German Reformed Prophetenschule (“school of the prophets”), was founded in 1862 to meet the religious needs of German immigrant settlements in Wisconsin and other Midwestern states. In time, it became one of the three seminaries of the Evangelical and Reformed Church.
Yankton School of Theology served the needs of German Congregational Churches in middle America. Following its establish-ment in 1869, the school was located in Nebraska and Chicago before settling in South Dakota.

The merger of these two schools expressed the uniting spirit which led to the formation of the United Church of Christ in 1957 and responded to the need for an ecumenical center of theological studies in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. By its charter, United is ecumenical, independent and multidenominational.
