Ministry Training in a Post-Christian Context

In our increasingly post-Christian world, our churches need leaders who can communicate biblical truth with clarity and compassion. That’s why Western Seminary's degree programs are designed to equip students for strategic ministry roles wherever God leads them. 

Whether you study at one of our West Coast locations (Portland, Sacramento, or San Jose) or anywhere around the world through our online degree options, we will prepare you for life and ministry in a world that desperately needs Jesus.

Graduate-level training at Western includes:

  • An emphasis on gospel centrality and biblical theology.
  • Mentorship from our seasoned ministry faculty who serve the local church.
  • The option to train for ministry without leaving your ministry via 100% online degree programs.
  • Theological education combined with genuine discipleship that leads to spiritual transformation.

"Studying at Western isn’t just about going to classes. This is about actual relationships with faculty and students who care about your training and development. I really look at my fellow students as partners in the mission of the kingdom."Hakeem Bradley / Portland, Ore.Young adults pastor
