Situated on the Pacific Rim, this seminary is an ideal location for students to come for Asian and Latino/a experiences and studies. It is also an environment where students can explore the multicultural reality of America. The various programs we have here will provide future pastors and other ministerial workers with training to do effective multicultural ministry and to gain a new perception of the world.
