Graduates of George Fox Evangelical Seminary are trained for ministry inside and outside church walls. They work as pastors, church staff, hospice workers, and as military and hospital chaplains. Others successfully plant churches, including multi-ethnic congregations, and oversee denominational and parachurch ministries in the United States, Canada, England and South Africa.
A seminary education also prepares graduates for postgraduate academic degrees and teaching jobs in seminaries or colleges.
All of the master’s programs meet at the seminary’s Portland Center near Tigard. Students choose Monday or Thursday classes of three-hour blocks and choose from a variety of Web-enhanced, online or weekend courses.
The master’s programs also give students the option of taking as many as 10 credits in one day, allowing commuters from throughout the region to attend classes just one day a week.
