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.
Over the past two weeks, we have looked closely at what we mean by affordable and accessible theological education. For the next two weeks, we will address the topic of relevancy by taking a deeper look at a few concepts: contextual, integrative, and developmental paradigm.
We're to spend time learning the word of God so it might guide our actions and shape our being. For this reason, we believe every follower of Christ is called to engage in theological education. Unfortunately, most have a narrow vision of theological education. And, many feel such education is only for pastors.
The past two decades seminaries have been raising funds for scholarships. In the process, total expenditures as an industry have grown at a rate almost three times faster than that of inflation. Today we're looking at how operational changes can make theological education more affordable.
Sioux Falls Seminary’s 158th commencement service and celebration will be at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, 2016, at First Baptist Church in Sioux Falls. We look forward to celebrating with our students, their families and friends, and the wider seminary community.
