Community Life

Our smart, creative community welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and traditions, creating an environment of openness that permeates learning and life on campus. Community worship, the cornerstone of spiritual formation, brings students, faculty, and staff together to proclaim the Word, break bread, and experience the profound and joy-filled worship of God. Our home in the heart of Austin brings culture, creativity, and diversity to our doorstep, allowing our students to engage in service and learning beyond the bounds of the Seminary campus.

Austin Seminary has shown me what community can be. It’s messy. It takes a lot of intention. It taught me how to value community more than being right.
