Coming to seminary is a major commitment. Although training for ministry in a Christian community is a joyful experience, it can also be a difficult and stressful time. Therefore, before they apply, applicants should have talked with their rector or pastor and other experienced Christian leaders, taken counsel from spiritual elders, friends, and most importantly, sought God's leading in prayer.

Applicants should carefully consider their financial budget for their time at seminary. They should explore all possible sources of funding, particularly from their local congregation, diocese or governing church body. Additional information is available under Tuition and Fees and Financial Aid.

Statement of Educational Effectiveness

Trinity School for Ministry is committed to effective education and preparation, forming Christian leaders for mission. In this fractured world, we desire to be a global center for Christian formation, producing outstanding leaders who can plant, renew and grow churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ. Theological education takes effort, money, prayer, support, and time to reach the goal of obtaining one’s degree. As one measure of effectiveness, of our recent May 2012, MDIV (Master of Divinity) graduates, 73% completed their program of study within 3 years.
