St. Louis Extension Center
Midwestern Seminary in St. Louis
Midwestern Seminary is thrilled to announce our new extension center. For years, Midwestern Seminary leaders have thought strategically and missionally about how to train leaders in and around the St. Louis metro area. Now partnering with The Journey and their Three Fourteen Institute, Midwestern Seminary has both the location and the local leadership to make this training happen. Join professors from Midwestern next semester and start preparing for gospel ministry.
Three Fourteen Institute
The Three Fourteen Institute is a two-year residency program that trains leaders to multiply Christ-centered disciples and churches. Residents in the program discern their calling and gifts through coursework, church, and cohorts. This means that every resident works towards a Master of Theological Studies degree at Midwestern Seminary while serving in front-line ministry alongside other residents and pastoral mentors. At the end of the program, residents graduate from Midwestern Seminary and are then sent by The Journey to other churches and ministries throughout St. Louis and the world.
St. Louis Extension Classes
Each semester, local classes will be taught at Midwestern Seminary’s St. Louis extension for students in the area. (You do not have to be a member of the Three Fourteen Institute to take these classes, though many of the students in the classroom will be Three Fourteen residents.) If you are a current pastor, future minister, or lay leader in the St. Louis area, you can start your education next semester.
