Pacific Evangelical School of ministry


The idea of The Pacific Evangelical School of Ministry was born from the prayers and deliberation of the Pacific Conference Board of Ministry. How best do we provide Christian workers who know, adhere, preach, and teach faithfully the doctrine of The Evangelical Church? To answer this question, the Board pursued meetings with Western Evangelical Seminary, the Annual Conference, and ministerial candidates. The result is an extended program of theological education designed to fulfill both the Conference Course of Study and the Alternate Graduate Level Study Program.
