HOW DO I CHOOSE A SEMINARY?
With more than 250 seminaries in the United States, where do I begin? Do I decide based on location, cost, an institution's past history, faculty publications, pastoral recommendations, the proliferation of degree programs, or housing options? How important is the study of languages? What about a seminary's doctrinal statement? How will the professors impact my spiritual life and character? What about helping me find a ministry after I graduate?
These are just some of the questions you need to consider. To help you, we'll be happy to send you a checklist of seventeen questions you can ask to assist you in your evaluation of the seminaries on your list. Choose carefully and prayerfully; where you train will determine what and how you teach!
