on top of the city's famous Hawthorne Boulevard,
the Western Seminary Portland Campus overlooks a hotbed of creativity. Everything
from national art, music, literature, and film hails from these and other neighboring areas. This
Oregon city is surrounded by mountains, forests, and beaches that reflect the image of our Creator.
Yet in the midst of all this creative expression and scenic beauty lies a deep search for meaning
and purpose. As a seminary, we want to help you address the cultural tide as God shapes you for
the challenges of ministry.

and plants flowering. If you want to go on a walking tour of our campus, just click on the below

east and west boundaries of the campus are SE 57th Avenue and SE 55th Avenue and the north and south
