To fulfill the vision of Bethel Seminary, we structure our educational resources around three centers of emphasis, each charged with implementing part of the vision statement. Our three centers of emphasis are:
- The Center for Biblical and Theological Foundations, with focus on areas including the Old and New Testaments, historical studies, and theological studies.
- The Center for Spiritual and Personal Formation, with emphasis on pastoral care, marriage and family studies, and mental health counseling.
- The Center for Transformational Leadership, offering children’s and family ministry, community ministry, discipleship in community, global evangelization and contextual ministry, ministry leadership, and preaching and communication.
In this way, we address the traditional fragmentation of learning experiences that often plagues theological education. Instead, we ensure integrated learning, providing a holistic educational experience for each student. We believe the 21st century church needs leaders who possess theological wisdom, personal and spiritual wholeness, and leadership skills.
