Michael Simmons, MA

Seminary Admissions Counselor, Master's Programs

Admissions Counselor, Master of Social Work





I joined the seminary admissions team in 2019. Since 2013 I've been involved in the seminary world from graduating from Asbury Theological Seminary with my MA, to taking classes at Portland Seminary, and supporting my spouse, Liz Simmons, through her Doctor of Ministry in Leadership and Spiritual Formation here at Portland Seminary. I love being involved in students' discernment process as they contemplate seminary. This is often sacred space, and can be a mixture of hope and fear ultimately leading to a new vision for their vocational future. I love pastoring prospective students as well as practically serving them as they walk through the seminary admissions process.
