School of Ministry

If God has placed a calling on your life to use your skills in a vocational ministry environment, then SEU Seacoast can help you further develop in this area.

While getting a degree from Southeastern University, you will be a part of practical hands-on learning experiences in ministry training in a variety of settings. Through the school of ministry, you have the opportunity to be a part of weekend service involvement, ongoing all-staff leadership training, planning and implementing local and foreign missions experiences, kids and student ministry, a variety of creative ministry areas, and ultimately finding an area at Seacoast or your local church where you can serve consistently.

Our goal for your experience is to build you as a servant, grow you as a leader, and launch you into your future. The goal of practicum is to help affirm and refine God's call on the student's life while offering hands on experience paired with classroom teaching. Practicum is a 3 credit hour, FREE class requiring 8-10 hours of serving each week. Practicum is required each semester for all enrolled daytime students.

Everyone wants to belong to something. At Custom, we see each student as the individual they are: unique and one of a kind.
