Live your calling.

Here, ministry begins the day you walk onto campus.

Ministry Begins Now

We’ll walk alongside you.

At Southwestern Seminary, ministry begins now. The church needs leaders with deep theological knowledge and hands-on ministry experience. Here, you’ll get both. If you’re called to take the next step, there’s no better place to start.

“The chief concern of the church and its ministry should be the salvation of men. This concern should not be localized nor nationalized. It should extend to all places and to all men. It should be as broad as the world and as wide as humanity.”

B.H. Carroll
Founder and First President of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
