Like all of Golden Gate’s campuses, the Southern California campus brings theological education to students where they live, enabling them to continue in their current ministry while attending seminary. For those students where commuting is not practical, student housing is available.

The Southern California Campus has a unique extension program to help provide theological training for ministry leaders in Southern California.

  • A partnership with Saddleback Church, in which lay ministry leaders and staff members of Saddleback can take fully-accredited seminary courses at the church, leading to a Master in Theological Studies.
