A scholarship that trims your training costs

Get your ministry training from a seminary devoted to the truth of the Bible, and the centrality of the gospel -- all while cutting down your costs with a special scholarship. Depending upon the details of your church's agreement, staff, interns, or congregation members may receive a scholarship covering between 10-30% of tuition. Submit your aid application online on our Student Information System (S.I.S.).


Scheduling that lets you learn without leaving

We specialize in training students who are already serving, which means we offer classes in accessible ways that won't require you to uproot from the church and community where God has put you. At our locations in PortlandSan Jose, Sacramento, and Seattle, you'll find 2-4 day intensive courses as well as evening and weekend courses. Our Online campus also makes a majority of master's level courses available via your web-connected devices, and some degree programs are available entirely online.
