Welcome to Asbury Theological Seminary! You have answered the call to serve wherever God may lead you, and we’re delighted that you’re here! This year, as we’re celebrating 100 years of God’s faithfulness, we are celebrating you, our students, who are committed to sharing the gospel message around the world.
We believe that formation takes a lifetime, and we’re glad to be on the journey with you as you answer God’s call. This year as we reflect on our past and look forward to the future, we remain committed to providing you an academic degree that is coupled with deeply rooted spiritual formation practices.
You’ll have the opportunity to worship regularly in community, join a D.N.A. discipleship group, as well as engage in a variety of occasions for fellowship and outreach.
As we journey together, we ask that God would richly bless you, as you continue the process of deep, abiding formation that will last a lifetime.
DNA stands for Discipleship, Networking and Accountability. These are groups of 3-5 people that meet together, pray together and read together to become the love of God for one another and the world. This is a way to join together in a networking community that leads us into discipleship, where we care for each other and hold each other accountable. New groups are always forming; it’s never too late to join others on the journey.
We want you to know, no matter where you are, you are not alone in your journey at Asbury Seminary. At Asbury, we believe that ministry leaders like yourself sometimes need a pastor while journeying through seminary. We recognize life and ministry can be particularly tough at times, so it can be life giving to meet with a loving pastor who will listen and pray with you. In our continuing commitment to journey with each other through our spiritual formation, Asbury Seminary Formation offers pastoral care to our entire student body.
Online and Extension Site students can contact Online Pastoral Care at email@example.com (1-833-PASTOR4) for prayer support and general pastoral care needs. Students located in proximity to Wilmore can make a pastoral care appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Community Formation, located on the Wilmore, KY, campus, offers a variety of community events to help you thrive as you grow in relationship with God and others. Through men’s and women’s events, marriage enrichment opportunities, children and youth activities, the community garden, and spiritual care offerings, you’re invited into an experience that fosters intentional spiritual growth within community. We look forward to welcoming you as you enter into this time of spiritual formation and academic study at Asbury Theological Seminary.
We desire for our worship to be an encounter with the living God through the risen Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Worship is the heartbeat of our Asbury Seminary community. We gather together as one body across our various Asbury communities to worship one Lord in one spirit. A variety of preachers, teachers, and leaders from around the world add to the richness of our worship experiences.
Wilmore campus Chapel services are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 11am in Estes Chapel. Daily Eucharist services are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at noon.
Not on campus? You can still experience Asbury Seminary’s chapel services through our online live streaming. Previous chapel services online here or on iTunes.
The Office of Formation at Asbury Seminary is led by Vice President Rev. J. Matthew Barnes, Ph.D. and consists of the Asbury Seminary Chapel office, Community Formation (Kentucky Campus), and Asbury Global Formation (Global Sites). Our desire in Formation is that each one of us is formed inwardly by the Holy Spirit for a life of service outwardly throughout the world.
