This is a great school. I enjoyed taking the Hebrew language courses. The professors and students are very nice.

I am familiar with the seminary because my brother, who is a pastor, has taken classes with them. He was very satisfied with the institution. I myself will be taking classes with them this fall.

I've taken quite a few classes at City Sem, and they've always been great. Good content and great in-class discussion!

My friend recommended City Seminary of Sacramento to me. I have been attending for about 6 semesters. I am very pleased with the level of commitment from the pastors to prepare and to lead the class in discussions. Because I was not able to pay I was sponsored by someone they found for me. Servants of the Most High God these dear brothers and sisters are. I am very grateful for all they invested in me! May The Lord bless their work further!

I took a class from City Seminary and was pleased with the attention given by the professor. Both the class environment and fellow students were helpful to my learning experience. I will definitely be returning for more classes in the future.

It is not too much to say that, without City Seminary, I would not be in the pastoral ministry now. It is a unique and special place where the students are well-equipped to pursue their callings by professors who have a wealth of both academic accomplishment and practical experience. I could not recommend City Seminary more highly.

I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Divinity degree. City Seminary made it possible for me to have a quality seminary education while working full time. I did not have to relocate my family, I could stay in my home church under the oversight of my elders, and I did not accumulate any debt. Since graduation, I have been ordained to the gospel ministry and I am serving in Lodi, California. Without exception, the professors are committed to the truth of the Scriptures and to teaching that truth to the students. If someone is serious about a theological education, they should consider City Seminary.

If only there were more institutions like City Seminary of Sacramento! Solid, Biblical, relevant, and useful classes taught by professors who give their all and care about their students. No student has every been turned away due to finances, and none incur debt to attend.

Great work done by City Seminary. Students have the opportunity to go to seminary without piling up a mountain of debt and without leaving their home congregation.

I am not a full-time student, and I have no desire to enter the ministry. However, City Seminary has given me the opportunity to learn more about the Scriptures in a small class environment. The professors are all full-time pastors with many, many years of preaching experience. I would recommend that anyone that is interested in learning more about God to consider attending the Seminary. It has been very beneficial to my life and walk with Christ.
