The Best of Old Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, Anglican and Reformed theology!

Proclaiming Christ with the Historic Church in the Parish Setting

Why Agape Seminary?


We have an International Presence

Our program has trained pastors and teachers serving around the world.

We have an Individual Structure

Because our Seminary operates on an European model, our classes center around reading and response. Therefore, there are no classes or set schedules.  You begin when you choose; you progress at your pace; you stay at your location!

We reflect the Historic Church

Our theology, our tradition and our education is recognized as the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. We outline and compare the Orthodox, Lutheran, Anglican and Reformed aspects of the Old Catholic Church.  

We are very Affordable

Understanding the real world and knowing that God's call extends to people at every level of income, we are committed to provide education at a minimum cost.  All of our programs can be earned for less than a $1,000 dollars.  And, we provide scholarships!

We Proclaim Jesus Christ

We operate with an understanding that the best of historical scholarship and the consistency of the Church's tradition, combine to proclaim Christ par excellence!  Our program is the first step in the life of a parish minister or educated Christian.
