About the SCA University of Theology and Spirituality
To help students grow theologically, spiritually, and psychologically by providing the skills necessary to identify and design their paths to success. To share a process of encountering the world in a dialogical way that promotes spirituality, wholeness, holism, integration, individuation, healing, and differentiation.
To create an educational environment that supports each student on his/her own path toward wholeness
and to help each one discover a deeper
understanding of his or her own educational and spiritual journeys.
Our Educational Philosophy
We recognize that the student is more than a one-dimensional being. Professors emphasize not only the academics behind each student’s study, but also the experience of connection with the individual’s own self and interaction with other learners in order to gain the skills needed for professional practice.

The SCA University of Theology and Spirituality was created to help ministry professionals, spiritual care providers, and skilled caring volunteers to reach their goals of advancing their spiritual training and earning their degrees. We at UTS believe that hands-on, life experience in ministry and pastoral work doesn’t come just from textbooks and lectures. Oftentimes, life is the best teacher. Spiritual leadership grows out of the relationships we form with those we support, where providing comfort and hope is the heart of our jobs.
Coming Together in Ministry and Spiritual Care
Know that with the help of our partners in the Spiritual Care Association, the University of Theology and Spirituality have collected and gathered the largest Think Tank of professional and experts in the area of Spiritual Care on the planet.
The SCA University of Theology and Spirituality defines ministry as “the life path that is in service to others while in connection with one’s own understanding of the divine”. It is the path chosen that moves the individual to a deeper connection with others and a clear understanding of the self.
Individuals involved in ministry are deeply committed to individual self-reflection and social responsibility. They are self-aware and nurturing. Ministry professionals are found in a variety of vocations and avocations such as music ministry, spiritual direction, health care, education, counseling, pastoral care, chaplaincy, religious education, church leadership, church administration, and other religious organizational positions, both professional and volunteer.
