Called to follow Jesus into the world

God calls us to join him as he builds his church – to take the gospel to the whole world, to serve the least and the lost, and to practice our faith in our communities. God longs for servant-leaders who are bold enough to proclaim the gospel not only with their voices but with their lives. We long to see God make all things new and see his kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.

A purpose bigger than us all

Being missional means we participate in God’s mission of hope, healing, restoration, and reconciliation.

Being missional means we believe in God’s narrative of timeless and transformative truths found in the Bible.

Being missional means we respond to God’s great purpose of working through ordinary individuals to make an extraordinary difference in our neighborhoods and around the world.

Therefore, Missio Seminary trains and equips leaders to be missionally-minded and to be better prepared to serve in God’s mission of redemption and restoration—his purpose that is bigger and beyond all of us—to follow Jesus into the world.

Theology for a messy world

We believe theology is applicable beyond the classroom and best realized when its truth is embodied in the context of people, places, and in the midst of the messiness of life and culture. Our biblical training is practical and contextual, preparing leaders to serve God in today’s fast-paced and ever changing world. Located in the heart of Philadelphia, we combine theology with practical ministry training to serve those in our city and around the world.

Unity in diversity

We don’t expect our professors and students to agree on everything. We encourage diversity, dialogue, and discovery. As a non-denominational school, we welcome students of diverse denominational, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds from around the globe. We believe that the mission of Christ is strengthened through those not afraid to ask questions and inquire beyond the status quo. There are no cookie-cutter students at Missio, only committed followers of Jesus, working to authentically follow Jesus into the world.

Practical & flexible programs

Whether full-time, part-time, or bi-vocational, our programs are designed to prepare and empower you to better follow Jesus in the world. We offer a wide range of practical ministry programs with education and training that is biblical, contextual and relevant to today’s fast-paced world. Whether you’re looking to gain a counselling license, pastor a church, serve overseas, or advance your theological understanding to better serve your community, Missio has a program and class schedule that can work for you.
