Theological education in the manner of Friends begins with hospitality. Welcome to the ESR website! As a Christian seminary in the Quaker tradition, we place high emphasis upon the value of listening for and discerning God’s call into ministry, grounded in distinctives such as integrity, equality, and peace. As an educational institution, we intend to be a community of learning where critical thinking and spiritual searching easily intertwine, leading us to a deeper understanding of God and each other, and a greater commitment to transformative ministry.
