George Fox Evangelical Seminary is a multi-denominational, evangelical, university-based seminary committed to equipping women and men academically, spiritually, emotionally, and theologically for ministry in the church and world. We are located in Portland, Oregon. We offer the opportunity to attend class one day per week on a full- or part-time basis or as a part of an Online Learning Community (OLC) for those interested in distance learning. Whether on campus or online, our faculty and staff create an environment where students are educated, trained, and mentored for leadership service.
The curriculum includes a Master of Divinity degree program, the foundational degree for pastoral ministry, and master’s degrees in Ministry Leadership and in Spiritual Formation, delivered either locally or in an online learning community. The MA in Theological Studies degree, with emphases in Bible, Christian history and theology, or Christian Earthkeeping, continues to serve those called to teaching or eventual doctoral study. The Doctor of Ministry degree, for experienced pastors who hold the MDiv or its equivalent, is a cohort-style online program with three tracks: Leadership and Spiritual Formation, Semiotics and Future Studies, and Global Missional Leadership.
George Fox Seminary faculty members come from a variety of evangelical backgrounds. They are pastors, church planters and missional leaders and share a common commitment to sound scholarship, warmhearted personal faith, and effective pastoral practice that continues to characterize the seminary’s approach to theological education.
The Association of Theological Schools granted the seminary full accreditation in 1974. The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities also certifies the seminary’s programs. This dual accreditation is maintained now through George Fox University and assures students of the highest academic and professional standards.
