Fletcher is a seminary where Biblical freedom is celebrated. As a multi-denominational seminary, Fletcher provides 21st Century leadership desperately needed for churches and pastors. When classes begin, Fletcher will facilitate interfaith dialogue, collaborate with non-profits, and emphasize the importance of pastoral care in ministry. Fletcher currently has representatives from six denominational groups on the Board, and will continue to add other persons in the San Antonio community who can add an ecumenical perspective as we strive for compassion and inclusivity.
Fletcher plans to initially offer a Master of Arts and Master of Divinity degree, and seek accreditation with The Association of Theological Schools. Fletcher will meet the ever-changing needs and demands of the 21st Century seminarians.
In 2018, The Association of Theological Schools reported that 940 alumni from 42 accredited seminaries, ministers most heavily rely on the competencies of: administration, spiritual disciplines, theology, pastoral care and counseling, preaching, leadership, conflict resolution, finance, community needs, and intercultural competency.
