Discernment Days Autumn 2021

Considering Seminary? Discernment Days 2021

If you’ve ever wondered whether seminary was for you, Seattle Pacific Seminary invites you to explore your calling and vocation at Discernment Days on Tuesday, November 9, or Wednesday, November 10. Discernment Days offers teaching, prayer, discussion, and thoughtful challenge with Seattle Pacific Seminary faculty, along with others who are considering seminary.

Discernment Days will offer an opportunity to learn more about the various Seminary Programs and hear from Faculty and Staff via a Webinar (Zoom Conferencing).

Both domestic and international students who attend the Discernment Days will receive a $1000 scholarship for their studies. This is above and beyond any aid you may already qualify for through FAFSA and SPU’s institutional aid.

Attendees will receive a copy of the book, Calling and Clarity: Discovering What God Wants for Your Life by Dr. Doug Koskela.
