The combination of zeal and knowledge which typifies Hyles-Anderson College has become known across America. This same proven combination is offered on a graduate level at Hyles-Anderson Seminary.
Our program combines advanced Bible training with a practical emphasis on preaching, soul winning, and building New Testament churches. Hyles-Anderson Seminary is taught only by professors who are experts in their fields and who go soul winning every week.
While attending the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, students learn from pulpit preaching, invitations, baptismal services, funerals, weddings, business meetings, and much more. Each student studies the varied, successful ministries of the First Baptist Church and has the opportunity to be involved in these ministries, which include the following:
- Church planting
- Truck stop ministry
- Sunday schools
- Reformers Unanimous
- Deaf ministry
- Bus ministry
- Blind ministry
- Soul-winning visitation
- Jail ministry
- Spanish work
- Rest home ministry
- Youth work
- Developmentally challenged ministry
We believe that you don’t have to wait until you graduate to be in the ministry; you can be in the ministry while you are training for the ministry. What is taught in the classroom Monday through Friday is made practical on the weekends in the Chicagoland area.
