We often are asked, “Why should I attend seminary?” The answer varies greatly based on each student’s experience, calling, and walk with the Lord. Seminary is a graduate-level education encompassing intense biblical study, theological training and practical ministry components designed to provide a balanced education that establishes a foundation for a life of fruitful Service. This level of training requires a significant commitment from both the student and from his or her immediate family.
Many believe seminary is only for those who are entering full-time ministry. Seminary is a place where men and women are trained and educated for Christian leadership on a deeper level than can be gained from church or Bible college. This training helps establish core values, depth of knowledge and ministry skills that enhance one’s ability to minister to others at any level.
Some who enter seminary training have not yet received final guidance from the Lord as to their service for Him. Instead they enter knowing that God wants them to pursue further knowledge of His Word and thus Him, unclear as to His ultimate plan. Read more or contact an enrollment counselor.
