The Need

Discover Something More

The church needs biblically literate people who are trained to serve with faithfulness and endurance. Pillar Seminary offers biblical and leadership training designed for current ministerial contexts - from lay ministry to formal pastoral roles. More than just “online seminary,” we flipped the classroom to maximize in-class impact.

We think advanced seminary training should be available to everyone, and we’re doing something about it.

What if anyone — not just a paid professional — could be equipped with world-class seminary training so that they could powerfully and effectively minister and lead where God has placed them? Imagine that church. And not just a church, but the Church worldwide. Transformed servant leaders would lead to a transformed Church.

Restore hope, recover goodwill, renew commitment and focus on what really matters most: following Jesus and inviting others to do the same.

The Flipped Classroom model swaps the traditional relationship between class time and at home work.

This model enables professors to use class time for far more than delivering traditional lectures.
