Since coming to faith in Christ, God’s Spirit has been steadily forming you into the likeness of His Son and drawing you into His work in the world. No matter your background or faith journey so far, you have been called to take up your cross and follow Jesus in the unique ways God is calling you. 

At Ashland Theological Seminary, we equip the called for effective ministry. Our seasoned professors with real-world ministry experience come alongside students to share practical tools and theological study techniques to understand, teach and apply the word of God faithfully.  

You can gain valuable insights and grow as a modern-day disciple through a close-knit community of students and Bible-centered coursework. You don’t have to begin ministering to others alone or unprepared. We are called to prepare and encourage you to follow your calling for a lifetime.
