We are pleased to announce a new Gospel Alliance between Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church and Erskine Theological Seminary. Mitchell Road is now the home for Erskine Greenville, an embedded extension site of the seminary, with an office dedicated to ministry in Greenville and in-person classes offered on weekday evenings (and Saturdays) during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.


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.


Members of Mitchell Road benefit from the ability to audit any of our courses for free. Even better, members have the opportunity to take most of our classes and receive a substantial scholarship. Courses may be taken for personal spiritual growth, to try out what seminary study feels like, for continuing education or life-long learning, to prepare for vocational ministry, or to explore how one might integrate the Christian faith in his or her current workplace—making your vocation your ministry.


In January 2021, Erskine will offer two in-person classes at Mitchell Road, “Christian Ethics” and “Professional Orientation for Christian Counseling,” as well as a host of online classes open to Mitchell Road members. For more on the in-person classes navigate here. For online classes navigate here.


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