Ministries come in all shapes and sizes

One thing remains constant… the desire to reach people. As the challenges of ministry change, the core goals for our students remain the same:

  • Train missional leaders who facilitate entrepreneurial innovation and
    encourage thoughtful dialogue in a culturally diverse, inter-denominational context
  • Promote unity and relationships through an interactive classroom experience

These distinct features are why numerous students have chosen Missio Seminary to successfully improve their current ministries and start new ones.

3) Complete and Submit Application

Prospective students are invited to submit an application for admission up to one year in advance of anticipated enrollment. We request that all applications are submitted and completed no later than one month in advance of anticipated enrollment.

When using our online application, you will be prompted to create an account prior to beginning the process. This allows you to save your progress and return to the online system at a later date to upload forms and documents that you have completed.

Please reach out to our admissions staff who can help you with any questions you may have.

4) Look Into Financial Aid

Missio will work with you to create a financial aid plan that will help you realize your educational goals. We do this through various student payment plans and through a variety of financial aid opportunities including scholarships, grants, discounts, and federal student loans.

Before applying for financial aid, you should assess your personal financial situation, including funds saved for education and your support network. A support network may include your home church, denomination, people to whom you have ministered, friends, family, clubs, and foundations.

We also believe no qualified student should be discouraged from pursuing seminary for merely financial reasons. We have established our financial aid program to supplement your financial resources.

For any questions about student aid or federal loans, please reach out to
