Theological Education Partnerships in Virginia

CBFVA is committed to sound theological education for women and men seeking seminary education in the Commonwealth. We enjoyed a symbiotic relationship with Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond until it closed, and now we partner with two seminaries to train the next generation of ministers and servants. Starting in fall of 2021, we offer a residential experience and an innovative in-place learning option.

The Baptist House of Studies offers a Certificate in Baptist Studies in a traditional residential setting in Richmond. Full tuition scholarships are available. For additional information, go to
