About the Seminary
Sioux Falls I Omaha I Online
Sioux Falls Seminary develops servants for their participation in the kingdom mission. This has been our focus since we began offering theological education in 1858.
We serve in the kingdom by providing systems of theological education and integrative counseling that are accessible, affordable, relevant, and faithful for the purpose of empowering people where they are, thereby offering a journey toward God’s hope.
We've embraced an outcomes-based philosophy of education that permeates every program and educational track. Some students interact with that philosophy by taking a traditional course in a traditional way, while others interact through distance education and contextual learning opportunities.
Roughly 70 students attended the recent Kairos Project intensive. Students came from three countries, two continents, and several states. All had one thing in common: they were here because someone told them about it.
We join our friends in the North American Baptsit Conferencein mourning the loss of alumnus Dr. Gordon Stork (MDiv & MACO '86; DMin '97), who served as an NAB Regional Minister, pastor, and former administrator at Sioux Falls Seminary.
As we enter into the third year of the Kairos Project at Sioux Falls Seminary, I am more convinced than ever that mentor teams and contextual learning are great ideas. This reality should come as a surprise to no one.
