God is Calling You


It is the mission of the Religion Department at Weimar Institute to prepare students for future ministry as pastors, teachers, missionaries, and administrators within the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Furthermore, emphasis is placed upon helping the student obtain a deeper, experiential knowledge of God through the rigorous study of Scripture and the development of mind, body, and spirit.

  • Mission is to prepare students for ministry as pastors, teachers, missionaries, chaplains, within the Seventh-day Adventist Church
  • Emphasis on helping students obtain a deeper, experiential knowledge of God through the careful study of Scripture and nature, and in the development of the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of life
  • Students gain knowledge and respect for the fundamental beliefs, worldview, and mission of the Adventist Church
  • Beyond just apologetics, theology students learn to focus every Bible study, sermon, dedication, baptism, wedding, and funeral into a call of commitment to Christ and His church
  • Unparalleled opportunities to integrate theological/religious study with practical application
  • In the RELIGION program, one semester is spent in HEALTH, a four-month MMW intensive. In the THEOLOGY program, the original languages are studied.
  • Each year, credit bearing field trips to Europe (Reformation) and Israel (life and ministry of the early church) with religion professors are available
  • More than preach, theology students are given opportunities to shadow the spiritual counselors of the NEWSTART Lifestyle Program and the Nedley Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program
  • Successful graduates become effective spiritual leaders, comprehensive health evangelists, discriminating readers, critical thinkers, effectivecommunicators, and biblical scholars

The Religion Department emphasizes helping students obtain a deeper, experiential knowledge of God through the rigorous study of Scripture and nature. Students will gain a knowledge of and respect for Scripture and the fundamental beliefs, worldview, and mission of the Adventist Church. It also provides for unparalleled opportunities to integrate with the NEWSTART® Lifestyle Program and with local, national and international mission experiences. Combined with the General Education program, this program will help develop a student holistically—mind, body, and spirit.
