Seminary Education Locally

A Word From Denver Seminary President, Dr. Mark Young

In the last 50 years, the context and character of ministry has changed dramatically. Once upon a time, most students came to seminary to become pastors—and thankfully, many still do. But today’s seminary students answer God’s unique call to seminary for a widening array of career choices and learning options, both in and out of a traditional ministry context. Students come to Denver Seminary sensing God’s call to ministries in the local church, parachurch organizations, mission agencies, nonprofits, schools, and many other settings. While culture has shifted, the basic structure of theological training has not adapted to meet the growing challenges and opportunities of the educational landscape of the 21st century.

Until now.

Our programs have undergone the most extensive enhancement of our 64 year history. Learn more about our reimagined curriculum. We believe that you’re going to like what you see.
