Seventh Day Baptist University is an integrated leadership training initiative among SDBs in the USA & Canada for the training of lay leaders and pastors for their work in serving their local churches and their communities. The program is not currently available for Seventh Day Baptists outside the USA & Canada. Program requirements also currently dictate that applicants receive endorsement from their local SDB congregation to be admitted to the program.
