If you or someone you know is considering the call to ministry, Discovery Weekend at Austin Seminary could be the next step. You will spend time with other prospective seminarians who can identify with your questions and concerns, and you will converse with Seminary faculty, staff, and students who can address those concerns. It is an invaluable opportunity to discern how and where God is calling you now. Get an up-close and personal view of theological education. We invite you to discover the possibilities.
