Why Seminary?

With your bachelor’s degree, God has shaped you into an adult and equipped you to serve him in your chosen profession.

Many times students ask, “What should I do next? I am getting ready to graduate, and I am not sure about my next step.” You have the skill sets that your major provided, but are you ready to lead in your
chosen field?

Maybe God has been working in your spirit about functioning in some leadership role in his church; equipping the saints for the work of the ministry.

Maybe he has been leading you to look at options related to serving as a leader as a bi-vocational minister. Are you ready to be a nurse and live among those who have never heard of Jesus?

As an advertising executive, are you also equipped to help plant a church in your neighborhood?

Seminary, like medical or law school, takes the concepts that you learned in your bachelors and trains you to serve as a leader among God’s people.

As your first step past your bachelor’s degree, a seminary master’s degree will enhance ministry skills that you can carry with you wherever your Christian journey takes you.
