Sanctus Seminary Introduction Video
We created a new video to re-introduce you to the Seminary.
We're changing to meet the demands of a new paradigm in pastoral studies & requirements for religious education. Sanctus Theological Institute has grown smaller since it's founding in 1998. Owing to the economy & our presence as a leader in On-Line Education we seek to refine our service to those who seek a more focused religious education.
We're a wellspring of inspiration and encouragement; providing opportunities or educational and spiritual growth. Founded in late 1998, Along with our Board of Advisors we are without jurisdictional or denominational agenda, preferring to serve Individuals and small faith communities on an individual basis.
Sanctus Seminary reaches the adult seminarian who is in active ministry or bi-vocational work. We function to provide a real world training and learning experience. Our materials and manuals are written by actual clergy and Scholars. Along with an extensive video library.

In 1998-99, STI began as a small seminary for those seeking programs tailored to their lives,needs and ministries. Fr. Jim was completing his own studies for the Ministry. As an Emmy Winning Documentary Maker. With laptop in hand, he studied where he could! Professors were willing to assist him and even help him form a new means of study. Travel opened doors to well known scholars and clergy, intrigued by this new paradigm in education.
