Prepare for Ministry in the Way of Jesus

Students at Pittsburgh Seminary prepare for ministry in the way of Jesus. Together we welcome neighbors. We share meals, differences, and experiences. We expand our minds. And we are challenged and enriched as we explore the broad range of beliefs we bring to the table. 

PTS invests in students by providing a reimagined curriculum, faculty mentors, contextualized learning in programs dedicated to urban ministry, church planting, and world mission, along with $1 million in financial aid each year. Join with students from more than 20 denominations in answering your call to ministry.
