Prospective Students

At San Francisco Theological Seminary, we have a bold vision for preparing leaders for Christ's future church.  We have never settled for tradition for tradition's sake, but we are not fooled into cutting off our roots to chase a trend. 

SFTS is blessed with world-renowned faculty who are committed to student formation as well as cutting-edge scholarship. The great skills and accessibility of our faculty combine with an exceptionally diverse student body to create a wonderful learning community. The resources of SFTS are greatly magnified by our affiliation with the Graduate Theological Union, the largest partnership of seminaries and graduate theological schools in the country. With all these gifts, SFTS will prepare you for ministry with:

  • A solid academic foundation in biblical scholarship, theological studies, and practical arts and skills for ministry
  • Highly contextualized multicultural education, drawing on innovative programs and partnerships, and a diverse but close-knit faith learning community
  • Multiple opportunities to deepen your spiritual roots, through worship, music and the acclaimed Program in Christian Spirituality
  • Flexibility to tailor your studies to your particular sense of call, research interests, ordination requirements and even work/family situation.

It's our great joy and calling to help you on this journey. With this approach, SFTS is uniquely qualified to offer you the spiritual, theological and practical roots that will enable you to grow as God calls.
