Welcome to Hood Seminary

Hood Theological Seminary is a graduate and professional school that provides
theological preparation for effective ministry in a diverse society.
Our programs can help you to pastor a local congregation, serve in a specialized ministry such as
Christian Education or Counseling, explore theological questions for personal enrichment,
lay a foundation for a PhD program elsewhere,
or retool yourself for more senior church leadership.
