At Phoenix Seminary, we believe excellence is a matter of mind and heart.
We BALANCE academics with practice
Phoenix Seminary faculty members are nationally and internationally recognized for their academic expertise and years of practical ministry experience. Their goal is to teach students to think biblically, study and graduate fully prepared for ministry in the real world.
Students are involved in systematic studies of the Scriptures and historic biblical theology. They learn current theological viewpoints and positions on contemporary issues facing the church and our culture at large.
As a result, the courses are theologically rich and relevant to hands-on ministry today. Internships and ministry exposures, in partnership with local churches, give students real life opportunities to apply what they learn in the classroom and further develop their God-given gifts and ministry skills.
We MENTOR our degree students
Phoenix Seminary works closely with local churches to assist students in the development of godly character and ministry skills. Degree students are paired in a personalized mentoring relationship with a Seminary professor, pastor, or other leader in the local Christian community. Our mentoring program focuses on the student as an individual—on his or her unique needs, strengths, and goals.
These mentors help prepare our students to be leaders with integrity—leaders who recognize their calling to live exemplary lives among God’s people for His glory, and who know that such a calling requires purity and godly character.
We PARTNER with local churches
Phoenix Seminary partners with local churches throughout the Southwest in training and equipping students for real-life ministry. We utilize qualified local pastors as adjunct professors, and many pastors and church leaders are involved in our mentoring and internship programs.
Phoenix Seminary has taken the lead to support all evangelical churches in Arizona to reach the six million people in this state with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Together, Phoenix Seminary and the local church offer students an unparalleled opportunity to gain “hands on” experience in applying the timeless truth of God’s Word to practical, relevant ministry today.
