What is the Seminario?

The Seminario exists to serve the Hispanic churches of northern California by providing quality and practical theological education that is in Spanish. Those who attend are primarily pastors and church leaders of local churches in the SF Bay Area, although anyone who is interested may attend.

The Seminario is a 3 year course of study that ranges from study of the bible to practical church ministries issues like; preaching, leadership and stewardship. We meet once each week for 3 hours for class time, and students have reading assignments and homework to do during the rest of the week.

When students complete all of the courses of study in the 3 years, he/she receives a Certificate of Ministry degree. Churches and church members who have participated in the program have witnessed a profound impact in and effective change to their ministry from the time of study.
