JOIN OUR COMMUNITY.
Make a difference with us — in the church, in the world.
Bexley Seabury is a welcoming teaching-learning community rooted in a generous spiritual and intellectual tradition. We seek curious, entrepreneurial lay and ordained leaders who will engage in bold inquiry in service of the Gospel.
We foster reflective and responsive leaders and help them develop the spiritual depth, theological understanding, and practical skills needed to transform lives and bring about justice.
Ecumenical setting, low-residency platform
Our community is situated in a vibrant, ecumenical setting. We are located on the
campus of ChicagoTheological Seminary in Chicago’s historic Hyde Park/Woodlawn area, long a center for learning and civic leadership.
Our low-residency platform lets you pursue advanced theological studies while fulilling your ministerial and other responsibilities.
Forming leaders for 21st-century ministry
Our degree, diploma, and lifelong learning programs combine classic theology and spiritual formation. Innovative courses are taught by scholar-practitioners who take a contextual approach, helping you link what you learn to what you experience.
Bexley Seabury seeks to affirm the dignity of all persons who are faithfully living out their vocations within our community—students, staff and faculty—without prejudice to any person regardless of race, color, gender, age, physical disability, height or weight, national and ethnic origin, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation/identity or gender identification.
