Residential Program

Your All-in Approach

Be prepared for professional ministry and learn to lead your community.

Residential students live on the historic, family-friendly, wooded campus overlooking Upper Nashotah Lake, nestled in the heart of Wisconsin’s lake country. What sets Nashotah House apart from other seminaries is the formation that takes place by living in an intentional community. Here students are invited to embrace a life of disciplined daily worship and Scripture reading, study the great thinkers of church history and theology in their own words, and learn to imitate the Lord in serving others, all in the context of a vibrant, intentional community that offers countless opportunities for fellowship and deep, lasting friendships.
