God has uniquely called you to reach women with the Gospel. Southwestern is the premier training ground in biblical womanhood and ministry to women. You’ll learn from the largest Women’s Studies faculty in a theological seminary anywhere in the world.
God has called you to Preach the Word and serve as a pastor in a local church. Southwestern’s Master of Divinity (M.Div.) is a comprehensive degree offering courses in theology, missions, evangelism, biblical languages, preaching, and pastoral ministry. With more than 30 concentration options available, you can customize your degree to meet your interests and specific ministry calling.
God has uniquely gifted and called you to serve the church through music. Southwestern’s School of Church Music will equip you with theological and practical ministry knowledge. Whatever degree option you choose, you can customize your training through focused study in worship leadership and performance, with concentrations in voice, piano, and guitar.
If God has called you to teach children, youth, collegians, or adults in a local church, Southwestern can equip you for the task. Our expert faculty with years of ministry experience will guide you in the most cutting-edge and biblically faithful methods of discipleship. The Master of Arts in Christian Education offers specializations in age-graded ministries as well as family ministry, biblical counseling and church administration. If you feel called to age-graded teaching ministry now but may one day pastor a local church, the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) offers concentrations in these fields as well.
If God has called you to church planting, Southwestern will equip you to Preach the Word & Reach the World. Southwestern’s Master of Divinity (M.Div.) is a comprehensive degree offering courses in theology, missions, evangelism, biblical languages, preaching, and pastoral ministry. A concentration in North American Church Planting, International Church Planting, or Evangelism will equip you with specific strategies for fulfilling God’s call on your life.
