Education Beyond the Walls – Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary

Education Beyond the Walls is the new outward-looking face of Austin Seminary, providing fresh, innovative, and expansive theological education for clergy, church leaders, congregations, communities.  We are a work in progress, very much open to where we find energy and emerging commitments among the churches and communities around us.

At the same time, Education Beyond the Walls is creating an array of opportunities:

  • Workshops for practicing Christians, linking theology and daily life;
  • Educational experiences to build up leaders for the Body of Christ;
  • Bringing people together across traditional boundaries to strengthen religious leadership;
  • Transformational learning for pastors.

We are exploring different structures, too – from Saturday school half-day classes to evening sessions with supper at the Seminary to multi-day intensives to learning cohorts who meet over time with financial support.

Come see what we are up to.

Location and Check-In
Seminars are usually held in the James I. and Hazel McCord Community Center on the Austin Seminary campus. Upon arrival, check in at the Office of Continuing Education on the entry-level floor of the McCord Center; after business hours, check in at the McCord desk.

See individual course descriptions for registration fees, tuition, and room and board. Registration fees are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled.  Room and board may be separate charges, and include the costs of overnight, on-campus accommodations, and meals as indicated. The balance of registration and board fees is due upon arrival.  Payment for housing is due at time of checkout.

Guest rooms are double occupancy; therefore, designating a roommate preference on your registration form is highly encouraged. Single rooms are subject to availability. There are a limited number of rooms accessible to persons with physical disabilities. Be sure to indicate on your registration form any special requirements you may have. We will do our best to accommodate you.  Please note: Austin Seminary is a smoke-free institution.

Meals are usually offered in the Stotts Fellowship Hall of the McCord Center. In some cases, the cost of meals is covered by subscription to a meal plan.  Overnight housing may also be a separate charge; however, other housing and meal arrangements can be made if you are not staying on campus. The cost of meals is approximately $9 per meal.
