The Fletcher Difference

  • flexible in class delivery, offering hybrid model classes
  • fully ecumenical serving students from a variety of denominations
  • embracing of international diversity
  • committed to innovation in theological education

Fletcher Seminary is committed to the health and well-being of the communities we serve. Our community education program ensures that lay and ordained individuals serving in churches, non-profits and community organizations have access to relevant continuing education on topics that address their needs. Each workshop will be offered in San Antonio and then to other communities depending on their needs. Where possible, Fletcher adjunct faculty and staff will travel to those communities to deliver the workshop in person. Where necessary, online programs are also possible.

Created through in-kind donations, the first workshop in this program covers grief and trauma related to COVID-19. It will be delivered in partnership with the Bethel A.M.E. Church in San Antonio on October 10, 2022 by Fletcher Board members, adjunct faculty, and staff.
