Discipleship in Seminary
The Christian life is more than learning about God. Seminary is more than learning theology. A good seminary education aims to train the heart as well as the head. Please take some time to learn about how we seek that growth in our students.

High Quality Education at an Affordable Cost
Are you concerned about the cost of seminary education? We are too. As the cost of higher education rises, so does the fear of graduating from school with student debt. What if you could attend seminary without worrying about debt? What if you could focus on learning instead of money? Please watch this video about the joy of seminary education, and then give us a call at 219-864-2400 to talk about how to make your seminary education financially possible.
