Whether your calling leads you to work within or outside the church, we promise to help you become a mature, confident and knowledgeable Christian.

At Seminary of the Southwest we are profoundly committed to the notion that all Christians—not just those called to ordination—have a vocation, a call from God into an identity and purpose uniquely one's own. We anticipate that most students who pursue a Master of Divinity degree are pursuing ordination in the Episcopal Church or some other denomination. Through our Center for Christian Ministry and Vocation, we offer degree and non-degree programs for laity who serve a variety of communities within and outside the Church. Indeed, there are a variety of ways one can manifest one's call to Christian leadership!
