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. Explore our course listing and the eight formats we offer. Be sure to read our student stories and the many ways that a Bethany education is transforming lives.

BrianSometimes it takes looking back to see God's leading in life. I graduated from Bethany in May 2007 and realized that God led my entire theological training. In the summer of 2002, however, it was a little tougher to see where it was going.

I realized my call to full-time ministry and knew it was to journey into the educational training part of my call. My campus pastor and I had several conversations about this next step. I fasted and prayed and sought the Lord but had no clear answer by the end of the fast. As I was preparing to break my fast, the Lord asked me, "What is the desire of your heart?" I replied, "Oral Roberts University."
