NEXT-LEVEL TEACHING TO FULFILL YOUR CALLING

Uncompromised.
Diverse.
Authoritative.

Can BJU Seminary provide the equipping I’m seeking?

You’re a recent or soon-to-be graduate considering the next level of your education at a seminary featuring some of the most respected names in their fields. Or mid-career, you’re weighing the next level of preparation to apply Biblical truth to the pressing theological and real-life issues facing those you minister to.

Either way, you’ve come to the right place. We don’t compromise on the content or the quality of the instruction you will receive.

We have assembled next-level teaching across diverse disciplines – whether you want to be one of 500 pastors we’re seeking to put on the path to the pulpit in the next five years; a Biblically faithful, life-affirming counselor; a pioneering missionary; or a groundbreaking theologian, apologist or teacher. With a commitment to careful,faithful interpretation, handling and application of Scripture.

Who serves on the faculty and what is their expertise?

Next-level teaching takes next-level teachers. It’s why we’ve brought together a faculty of renowned scriptural scholars, theological thought leaders and ecce esiastical influencers — but most of all great teachers. Under their guidance, you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a non-denominational program that champions authentic, authoritative biblical theology.

These men are not only pacesetters and innovators in their academic fields – many of them published authors – but also actively serving in local churches as pastors, teachers and counselors. And they bring into the classroom an average of 20 years of experience in ministries spanning church-planting and revitalization, evangelism and missions around the globe.

MORE AFFORDABLE THAN EVER

Considerate.
Competitive.
Accommodating.

What about the cost? Can I achieve it financially?

We know that graduate school debt can be a crushing burden for those in or entering ministry – and can sometimes be a roadblock for acceptance into service. So just as we don’t compromise on content or quality of instruction, we’re making sure you don’t have to compromise when it comes to cost.

BJU Seminary’s per credit fee is among the lowest among leading evangelical seminaries — and the lowest for full-time Masters of Divinity students.

What financial support can I count on?

Our goal is to minimize cost of education as a barrier to entering Christian service, especially for pastors – many of whom have found financial struggles forcing them from the pulpit.

That’s why we have developed a range of scholarships across different areas of study and need. 95% of resident students who applied for scholarship funds in 2020-21 received them.

Graduate assistant part-time work programs and opportunities in the thriving Greenville business community are also available.

And low-cost housing is available on and near campus.

MORE ACCESSIBLE THAN EVER

Convenient.
Varied.
“Stackable.”

Does BJU Seminary provide the flexible approaches to learning I may need, including livestream, modules or certificates?

Our “no-compromise” approach extends beyond content, quality and cost to convenience.

A resident program provides the opportunity for rich interaction with faculty and fellow students. But we know that many seminarians today are pursuing a further degree while they pursue their existing ministries, and others must work their way through school. Lay leaders may be seeking specialized, certified training with the option to “stack” coursework toward a future full degree.

Whatever your needs or circumstance, we have you covered with a full range of livestream classes as well as modules and certificate programs.

UNCOMPROMISED BIBLICAL
EXPOSITION AND APPLICATION

Proclaim.
Serve.
Advance.

What are BJU Seminary’s mission and vision?

Our mission and strategic vision are both simple and timely: To equip the next generation of pastors, counselors, missionaries and theologians with: Uncompromised, next-level teaching to effectively PROCLAIM THE WORD The hands-on, basin-and-towel training to humbly SERVE THE CHURCH and The inspiration, motivation and commitment to boldly ADVANCE THE GOSPEL.

And specifically, in the face of a desperate nationwide shortage of pastors, our 500x5x5 Strategic Vision is to put 500 pastors on the path to the pulpit in the next five years – and every five years after that.

Where is BJU Seminary, and is it an attractive place to live? 

Our hometown of Greenville, SC was recently named by Thrillist as “America’s Coolest New Weekend City.” The trend-spotting and-setting website gushed: “Greenville lures in visitors with an absolutely astonishing downtown, anchored by a 60-foot waterfall and expansive green space. Combine that with one of the finest urban bike paths in America and a flourishing local food and arts scene, and it’s no wonder this happening little locale of 70,000 about an hour south of Asheville has become one of America’s fast-growing cities in recent years.”

Can I support myself if necessary

In addition to many partner churches, our region is also home to a thriving and growing business community. Notes the Livability website, “(T)here’s an abundance of high-skilled, high-paying jobs here, as well as an impressive network of support for entrepreneurs.“

Many businesses are owned and/or operated by BJU alumni, and others who have worked with seminarians in the past, all eager to employ men and women of the character, caliber and qualities exemplified by Seminary students.
