Laramie Valley Chapel has long seen the need for an accredited Seminary closer to home that would provide men and women a solid foundation in the Word to build their lives upon. By starting The WEST Institute and partnering with Shepherds Theological Seminary’s Teaching Site, they have been able to accomplish this. The program is beneficial for believers headed into any line of work, not just future full-time ministers. Students earn a 46-hour Master of Arts in Church Ministry degree from Shepherds Theological Seminary and are prepared to better serve in their local church, minister to their coworkers, and lead their family.

The mission of The WEST Institute is to see the lives of men and women changed through the study and personal application of God’s Word. We strive to stretch students in their faith through intense study of the Bible, living in community with other believers, and experiencing God’s creation. In just one calendar year students in our Master’s program earn a fully accredited Master’s degree and equip themselves for a more effective life of ministry. We also offer the Bible Institute, a one year guided Bible study through the whole of Scripture. This program is available to Laramie Valley Chapel members and students in Laramie and meets Monday-Friday, 6-8 am.
