Mission Statement
The mission of the Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation is
to seek, develop and support excellence in Christian leadership
through the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Vision of the Board
Trusting God and with commitment to ongoing stewardship,
together we boldly move forward seeking, developing and supporting excellence in Christian leadership for the PCUSA.

The twenty-first century is a challenging time for the Church. Congregations and specialized ministries alike need pastors who are both faithful and well-trained.

The Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation is committed to pastoral excellence. Through a variety of educational ministries the Foundation supports such Christian leadership for the Church. This mission is accomplished by:

  • Providing scholarships to students attending approved Presbyterian Church (USA) seminaries 
  • Developing and funding collaborative continuing education events for clergy and other church leaders 
  • Exploring creative ways to encourage a new generation of pastors to respond to the call to ministry 

You are invited to participate in the many opportunities provided each year by the Foundation and listed on this website. Also, if you would like additional information on how you can share in this ministry, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you and being an ongoing part of your faith journey.

Grace and peace,

Dr. Gary Eller signature
