Professional Program

In the classrooms of La Sierra’s School of Religion, my desire and passion to serve as a pastor became both a clear revelation and a tangible reality. The conversations in the classroom have been some of the most challenging and faith-stirring I have ever encountered. Because of them, I walk confidently in my faith. I’m equipped to make the gospel relevant for children and families. I feel ready to be an integral, hands-on part of the Adventist Church as well as the world church at large.

Beverly Maravilla, B.A. 2011, Pastor For Children And Families La Sierra University Church

What you find in our School of Religion are faculty members who are experts in their fields and who are committed Seventh-day Adventist Christians. As a student, I was challenged to discover fresh ways of understanding and communicating the gospel, and serving the church and the world for Christ. I feel prepared to face the challenges of real-life ministry.
