About Bethel Seminary
Our academic programs allow students to pursue their passion for ministry. Through master's, doctorate, and certificate programs, students can choose a deeper emphasis of study ranging from youth ministry, to pastoral care, to urban community leadership.For most of our history, Converge Worldwide has supported our mission and employed many of our graduates. However, we partner with other denominations and parachurch organizations, including Young Life and Campus Crusade for Christ.Students from all denominations are welcome. And women may prepare for all forms of ministry, including pastoral ordination.
Mission and Doctrine | Our passion is to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ among all people in culturally sensitive ways. As a Spirit-empowered, biblically grounded community, Bethel strives to develop and equip whole and holy persons to serve and lead, so that churches and ministry agencies can become all they are called to be and do all they are called to do in the world, for the glory of God. We are orthodox and evangelical, with roots in pietism—guided by a high view of Scripture and a focus on obedient, personal faith. We're also characterized by an irenic spirit—united on ...core doctrines but tolerant of differing evangelical viewpoints on lesser issues.
Three-Centers Approach | Through a philosophy we call the three centers, we prepare well-rounded ministry leaders. All programs focus equally on helping students acquire: Sound biblical/theological foundation, leadership strength, and strong personal/spiritual character. This transformational philosophy develops graduates with better potential for enduring success in ministry.
