Opportunities in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

At Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, it isn't just the hybrid classwork that will prepare you for your future ministry, it is also the experience faculty and the opportunity to learn in a community that prioritizes holistic formation. Our seminary degrees feature opportunities for cross-cultural experiences, urban ministry, practical preparation for adaptive and innovative ministry, and the chance to explore life in biblical times through our Kelso Museum of Near Eastern Archaeology. Providing a variety of online resources and print materials, the Barbour Library is the most extensive stand-along library from Philadelphia to Chicago, offering our students the academic resources they need to succeed.

All within a short drive of campus, the city of Pittsburgh also provides opportunities for inner-city, suburban, small-town, rural, traditional, and emergent church leadership. Pittsburgh is a wonderful place to study and enhance your ministry, grounded in faith and formed in community. Our graduates have gone on to be pastors, mission workers, church planters, professors, counselors, and lawyers, as well as church and lay leaders.
