Structured Training for Real-World Impact

Seminary education marries understanding of God and His Word with real-life skills so that students minister with excellence in the church, workplace, and the world. Seminaries are built upon the college or university model, where students attend classes with other students to learn from professors, write papers, complete learning projects, and serve in internships. Because the seminary is an academic institution, external agencies will hold it accountable for upholding high standards for the sake of its students.

Academic Excellence Through Personal Guidance

Mentoring is another significant value of seminary education. Students have the opportunity to form relationships with leaders engaged in different aspects of church and community life, and those leaders will be able to share guidance and advice from a place of experience. Additionally, seminary students will gain access to ministry libraries and resources that are not available outside of an educational setting. Many seminary students consider themselves to be lifelong learners, and having the resources to keep their education up to date is one of the greatest benefits of attending seminary.

Diverse Perspectives and Approaches

At Life Pacific Seminary, we place great emphasis on nurturing a solid foundation in historic Christian orthodoxy. Yet, we also understand the profound value in broadening one’s theological horizons. Thus, we actively encourage students to engage with a wide array of theological perspectives and approaches, recognizing that such exploration can not only enrich their foundational beliefs but also enhance their ministry practice by fostering a deeper appreciation for the complexities and diversity within the Christian tradition.

Programs of Study

Master of Arts in Theological Studies

The MATS gives students the vital biblical, theological, and teaching foundation necessary to design learning experiences effectively in any ministry setting where the Bible needs to be taught. These courses of study can yield an interest in further exploring theological education at the post-graduate level as well as considering teaching the Bible to a group or congregation.

Master of Divinity

Master of Divinity (MDiv) program focuses primarily on the acquisition and refinement of practical ministry skills for use within various ministry leadership contexts. Students in this program work to apply the principles of faith to their unique ministries

I’m looking forward to bettering my ability to communicate my thoughts and feelings cohesively while serving in my pastoral context and in my personal life. This program will deepen and expand the calling that God has placed in my life and ministry.
