Students Flock to Seminaries

by Dr. D ~ March 17th, 2006

     Seminary enrollment has increased by 20% in the 15 years, at mainline Protestant seminaries, while the sponsoring denominations continue to decrease. Recent studies have shown however, that only about half of the seminary graduates are actually entering parish ministry.  Many graduates are using their theological educations in other allied fields, like education, hospital chaplaincies, family counseling, & non-profit organizations.
