Moscow Theological Seminary

Today, Moscow Theological Seminary operates 11 Learning Centers across Russia: Moscow, Chita, Chelyabinsk, Golgotha, Noyabrsk, Leninsk-Kuznetsky, Rostov-on-Don, North Caucasus, Khabarovsk, and Ivanovo.

A new Learning Center in Sacramento, CA will open in August 2014.

The Seminary’s current enrollment is over 900 students and growing, with 375 students attending classes in Moscow and 555 in the Learning Centers for a total of 930.

Students follow a “distributive and intensive” model. Two-week class sessions are held once, twice or three times a year to complete a five-year Bachelor program, depending on the program. Academic programs include pastoral ministry, Christian education, worship arts and counseling. Seeking to be relevant and responsive to the local church’s needs, Moscow Theological Seminary also offers certificate programs in areas such as church-state relations, rehabilitation ministry, social work, youth ministry, and church administration.
