"I came into seminary with an appreciation for God's grace, but I left with this glorious picture of how the Triune God pours out His grace upon and into His people, the church." - Rev. James Norris (MDiv '16), Pastor of New Hope Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Abbeville, SC
Over 95% of our student body is enrolled in the Divinity Program. Men come to Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary to equip themselves for the gospel ministry, and they graduate with a commitment to preaching, pastoring, and service to the church.
Reflecting our core value of Accessibility, we offer a Bachelor's of Divinity degree for qualifying students. Applicants must be men 30 years of age or older, who are endorsed by a session/church to pursue a course of theological education. The program is identical to the MDiv.
This degree program is designed for men and women who are involved in non-ordained ministry in the church, and who desire to grow in their familiarity and understanding of the Bible, systematic theology, and church history. Students may pursue a concentration in one of the following: Biblical Languages, Church History, Apologetics, or Systematic Theology.
This highly focused degree program includes instruction in personal piety, Bible knowledge, Presbyterian church government, and the role of ordained officers in the church. Admission to this program is restricted to men ordained as Ruling Elders and Deacons.
Individual faculty members occasionally take on advanced degree students by special request or invitation.
