Western Seminary Seattle Teaching Site
Gospel-centered theological training in the Seattle area is a reality, thanks to a partnership forged between Western Seminary and the Mars Hills Churches.
In the fall 2014 semester, Western Seminary will launch a teaching site* at Mars Hill Church Bellevue to serve new and current Western Seminary students who come from any number of churches in the greater Seattle region. The teaching site will also be the preferred seminary training option for elders and staff of the Mars Hill Churches, since it serves as one part of the Mars Hill Schools.
Western Seminary is recognized worldwide for offering trustworthy and accessible training for gospel-centered transformation. Since launching in 1927, over 5000 students have trained at Western for vocational and volunteer ministry as pastors, counselors, coaches, missionaries and educators. Our graduates bring renewal and vitality to church communities. And to those who've never known it, our graduates testify to the life that only Jesus can give.

- Teaching from Western's ministry-seasoned faculty and adjunct professors
- Convenient evening and weekend course scheduling for working students
- Curriculum built around gospel-centered transformation in our students and in our world
