Called to Lead.
Called to Care.

For those following the call to pastoral ministry, missions, or evangelism, the sheer weight of responsibility can be staggering. Though they are sold out to the mission, many new ministers end up crushed under the responsibilities and emotional strain of their vocation.

Bethesda School of Ministry believes that we empower young people to not just withstand but also flourish under the pressures of pastoral leadership by equipping students with the knowledge and tools that they need to pursue a calling in vocational ministry.

A pastor must be prepared for anything. Bethesda School of Ministry will equip you for the challenges of life in vocational ministry.

If you would like to talk to someone about your calling to pastoral ministry, please contact us today.

Our pastoral internships cover a broad list of topics, from the practical to the philosophical.
