Do you have a heart for ministry?

Portland Seminary is committed to your spiritual formation – the process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others. We will challenge your mind, heart and will as you seek to follow God’s call on your life.

Go beyond theology

The seminary prepares students for ministry inside and outside local church walls. They go on to work as pastors, church staff, hospice, military and hospital chaplains. Our graduates are engaged in church planting, including multi-ethnic congregations, and overseeing denominational and parachurch ministries in the United States and abroad. Other graduates go on to earn postgraduate degrees and teach in seminaries or colleges.

A Christ-centered seminary

We are Christ-centered, church-focused, culturally relevant, spiritually intentional, biblically based, broadly evangelical and technologically integrated.

Our roster of visiting professors includes nationally prominent authors, speakers, theologians and pastors, including Len Sweet, Deborah Loyd, Jason Clark, and A.J. Swoboda.
