“The playing field has changed! Anyone hoping to engage in ministry in today’s complex and rapidly changing world knows we need all the help we can get. For those interested in ministry who are hungry to learn and grow, Emmanuel’s degree programs are top notch.”

Ben Cachiaras, Senior Pastor, Mountain Christian Church

There are a range of opportunities available to graduates. Our alumni go on to serve as full-time missionaries and work with organizations that strive to bring the Bible to unreached people groups. They plant churches, develop and run non-profit organizations, and advocate for community development. Emmanuel alumni are teaching in colleges, universities and seminaries, and many work in the medical and military fields through chaplaincy.

After more than 50 years of service, Emmanuel still works to fulfill the mission of the Church by preparing men and women for a lifetime of ministry.

“I never expected to find a better community than the one I had in college. I couldn’t have hoped to find these friends on my own, but thanks to the power of God and the uniqueness of this seminary I have found a place I love to live. I have found a family I couldn’t dream up.”

Kerry Anderson, Emmanuel Student

One of the most important experiences in your time at seminary will be participating in Christian community. At Emmanuel, we’re a close-knit community of scholars and ministers, pastors and thinkers, friends and families. Many students live near one another in the Emmanuel Village, just a short walk away from the B.D. Phillips building where the library, chapel, and most classrooms are located.
