We’re More Than a Seminary

We Provide Education For Transformation

United recognizes that effective spiritual leadership requires more than just theological understanding. While many seminaries focus only on preparing students for traditional Christian ordination in parish ministry, United also values the importance of public witness and equipping students to be innovative and compassionate leaders in more non-traditional contexts.
