Sioux Falls Seminary

Sioux Falls Seminary has been equipping servant leaders for the ministries of Christ in the church and in the world since 1858. The seminary was founded in Rochester, New York, and moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in 1949.  In addition to its affiliation with the North American Baptist Conference, the seminary serves the educational needs of its region.

Strongly evangelical, Sioux Falls Seminary has been offering its students practical ministry experiences for years.  Students are placed in churches or other places of ministry where they are able to preach, teach, and lead worship or see clients through the seminary's Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic, all of which enhance classroom instruction.  Today, with its In Ministry programs, the seminary is paving new roads in Contextual Learning by seeking to reach students who can not relocate to Sioux Falls or commit to seminary full time.  Personalized learning options, flexible scheduling, online and hybrid courses, and more are offered to all students to help meet their needs. 

Due to its size and educational approach, Sioux Falls Seminary has much more to offer students than just degree programs—attending Sioux Falls Seminary is an experience.  Study at Sioux Falls Seminary, will not only equip you for ministry, but more so, transform you.  A strong sense of community and personal relationships with faculty are just a few of the benefits Sioux Falls Seminary offers.

Sioux Falls Seminary is known for its creative, relational teaching in adult learning models. Flexibility within the degree programs allow a student to address his or her career goals. Sioux Falls Seminary is also noted for its strong placement record.

Denominational diversity within the student body fosters a broadening of thought and perspective. Classes allow for rich interaction between students and faculty.
