Seminary is a sacrifice, but it is a sacrifice for a season. The investment you make in this training will pay ministerial dividends for a lifetime.

As you search for a job, a place to live, and the funds for tuition, the staff, faculty, and students of TMS are eager to walk alongside you as He equips you for gospel ministry. If you have financial questions or concerns about life in Los Angeles, schedule a call with our admissions team and listen to the testimonies of students who went before you.


The cost of higher education is expensive no matter where you study. We strive to make TMS affordable. Alumni should not be hindered by debt when they graduate.

Our ministry partners enable us to offer every Master of Divinity student the Full-Time Residential Scholarship. Just by attending TMS full-time (11 units or more) in Los Angeles, your cost is reduced from $500/unit to $345/unit.

While the majority of funds are reserved for students who have completed at least one or two semesters of coursework, the following scholarships are available to incoming Master of Divinity students. These scholarships are awarded in addition to the Full-Time Residential Scholarship.

Finding Housing

Most students choose to live in the area surrounding The Master’s Seminary. This includes Northridge, Granada Hills, Encino, Sherman Oaks, North Hollywood, Burbank, Glendale, Simi Valley, and the Santa Clarita Valley.

Knowing the high cost of living in Los Angeles and the difficulty of finding affordable housing, The Master’s Seminary in partnership with PAC Properties has created The Housing Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to alleviate some of the financial burden of attending seminary in Los Angeles. The Housing Scholarship is renewable each year and provides up to $4,200 per semester or $8,400 per year.

Finding Employment

At The Master’s Seminary, on-campus classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This makes it possible for students to work the rest of the week. For those needing to work full-time, TMS offers a five-year M.Div. track that combines online and Saturday classes.

A number of employment opportunities are available through The Master’s University and Seminary, Grace Community Church, and Grace to You. Many of these opportunities come with significant tuition benefits for student-workers. These positions include pastoral internships, custodial staff, security team, marketing, admissions counselors, youth ministry workers, and more. Students’ wives are encouraged to apply for these positions as well.

Through the thousands of members at Grace Community Church, there is a vast network of generous, hardworking people. Getting involved at church is actually one of the best ways to find employment. Many opportunities are listed on the GCC Opportunity Sheet.
