Erskine Greenville at Mitchell Road

Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church is excited to be in a gospel alliance with Erskine Theological Seminary. Mitchell Road is the home for Erskine Greenville, an embedded extension site of the seminary with in-person classes offered on weekday evenings and Saturdays during the fall, spring, and summer semesters.

Membership Benefits

Members of Mitchell Road benefit from the ability to take any seminary course for credit while receiving a substantial scholarship (or can audit for free). Courses may be taken for personal spiritual growth, to try out what seminary study feels like, for life-long learning, to prepare for vocational ministry, or to explore how one might integrate the Christian faith in his or her current workplace.


Spring 2022 Classes and Registration

During the spring semester 2022, Erskine offers two in-person classes at Mitchell Road (and one hybrid class) open to all members:

  • PM 608 Pastoral Care & Counseling on Monday nights

  • CC 625 Crisis, Trauma, & Disaster Counseling on Tuesday nights (in-person on 1/18, 2/15, 3/15 and 4/19, with other Tuesdays via Zoom)

  • OT 739 Elijah/Elisha Narratives on four full-day Saturdays (1/22, 2/12, 3/5, and 3/26)


Erskine also offers a host of online classes open to Mitchell Road members, with a schedule and class information found here.


To register for classes or for more information, contact the Executive Director of Erskine Greenville, Dr. Seth Nelson at (757) 560-0040 or seth.nelson@erskine.edu.

Erskine Theological Seminary is an accredited, Gospel-centered, Presbyterian seminary based in South Carolina founded in 1837. Erskine’s commitments to the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and Reformed theology and its ecclesial and missional spirit resonate with Mitchell Road’s vision to incarnate Christ in word and deed in Greenville, throughout the Upstate, and into all the world.
