Sioux Falls Seminary, a North American Baptist Seminary, has been equipping servant leaders who engage the mission of Jesus Christ since 1858. The seminary was founded in Rochester, New York, and moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in 1949. In addition to its affiliation with the North American Baptist Conference, Sioux Falls Seminary serves the educational needs of the many denominations in its region.
Strongly evangelical, Sioux Falls Seminary has been offering its students practical ministry experiences for years. Students are placed in churches or other places of ministry where they are able to preach, teach, and lead worship or see clients through the seminary’s Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic, all of which enhance classroom instruction. Today, with its distance learning options, Sioux Falls Seminary is paving new roads in Contextual Learning by seeking to reach students who cannot relocate to Sioux Falls or commit to seminary full time. Personalized learning options, flexible scheduling, online and hybrid courses, and more are offered to all students to help meet their needs.
