AdmissionsAt Bethany Seminary, we understand Jesus as our teacher-rabbi who serves as the model educator. Our curriculum, pedagogy, and community are rooted in his teaching ministry calling us to

  • free the inner life for outreaching service to neighbor and stranger;
  • form respectful communities in which each person is regarded as beloved;
  • examine social, political, and religious structures and systems that do harm;
  • relieve suffering by transforming conflict nonviolently and serving justice creatively; and
  • integrate wisdom, ethics, the arts, and theology in all vocations.

Imagine studying God, self, world and other for the next step in your pilgrimage. Either enjoy the rich Midwestern community of Richmond, Indiana, or study from a distance through our Connections program. Explore our academic programs by scheduling a Campus Visit.

Nan Erbaugh
Emphasis in Peace Studies '08

NanBethany taught me so much. I didn't realize what a loner I had really been all my life until I opened myself to life within the Bethany community. I felt stretched, pushed, and affirmed in amazing, helpful ways. The importance of a close, supportive community cannot be overestimated, especially in light of the challenges faced living out the peace witness to which I feel called. At Bethany, I gained more courage to step into this crucial niche of the Church of the Brethren. Add the grounded, spiritual theological foundation and academic depth I gained through course work, and I feel transformed in a powerful, positive way to serve God.
