Be a Positive Force of Change in the World!
San Francisco Theological Seminary (SFTS) reinvents education for ministry through unparalleled innovation, rigorous scholarship, and a tradition of commitment to spirituality and social justice ministry in the Christian faith. We have created innovative educational programs for people from all walks of life to apply wisdom and ethics to all kinds of work in the world. Our students seek to make the world a better place, not just for some, but for everyone.
We are a welcoming multicultural community assembled from throughout the world. Our degrees in theology combine classroom learning with immersion in practical ministry, preparing students to bridge theological, cultural, and political divides. Here you will refine your unique gifts to cultivate spiritual advocacy in its many forms for your journey in our expansive, ever-changing world. All are welcome.
While our commitment continues to be the training of pastors for ministry, we are actively exploring the many ways our students can revitalize the role of faith across a variety of professions and social services. We are teaching students to live out their ministry by serving others and their communities.
