Building ministry leaders to serve the needs of our complex world.

For over 135 years, Bethel Seminary has been a Spirit-empowered community of students, faculty, and staff—all working to become better followers of Christ. Take a look around to learn more about who we are and what we offer. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

Bethel Seminary St. Paul

St. Paul

Our St. Paul programs give students quick access to ministry projects and internships within the vibrant Twin Cities.

Bethel Seminary San Diego

San Diego

Our San Diego location sits in the heart of this thriving city where diverse cultures come together, giving students a huge variety of ministry opportunities.

We're here to stir the soul in transformational ways. And if we do things right, students leave our programs with a sort of wool-shirt itchiness about the status quo—and become change agents in the world.

Why Bethel Seminary?

Whether you're looking to serve youth, urban congregations, or engage in cross-cultural ministry, we offer dozens of specialized degree programs at convenient locations across the country (St. Paul and San Diego). For active lay or professional ministers, we also offer the InMinistry Distance Learning program, one of the most innovative and successful hybrid seminary programs.
