Welcome to The School of Theology

The School of Theology is located in Sewanee, Tenn., and is an institution of the University of the South. The School is comprised of an accredited seminary of The Episcopal Church and the Beecken Center, a center for lay and clergy education and training.

The seminary educates women and men to serve the broad whole of The Episcopal Church in ordained and lay vocations. The School develops leaders who are learned, skilled, informed by the Word of God, and committed to the mission of Christ’s church, in the Anglican tradition of forming disciples through a common life of prayer, learning, and service. Sewanee’s seminary education and world-wide programs equip people for ministry through the gift of theological reflection in community.

The Beecken Center is dedicated to furthering Christian formation for the faithful from all walks of life offering a variety of exciting events, formative trainings, and life-changing programs for clergy, laity, and all the baptized. Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 80,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service.
