Logsdon Seminary opens a new facility in San Antonio


Logsdon Seminary and Hardin-Simmons University would like to announce the opening of a new extension campus in the San Antonio area. With the opening of this new educational center, HSU will now have the largest location away from our Abilene campus for our seminary students to take courses.

Logsdon has a deep commitment to excellence in distance education that is different than typical online courses. Students have the ability to co-attend from multiple Logsdon campuses. A single class meeting, linked via the internet, still allows students in remote locations to collaborate and experience their lessons together. This unique approach to seminary studies has been successful in the San Antonio area, where Logsdon has 61 students currently working on Master’s of Divinity, Master’s in Religion, Master’s in Family Ministry and Doctorate of Ministry degrees.

The 3,500 sq. ft. facility is connected to Trinity Baptist Church’s Mulberry Campus at 319 E. Mulberry Ave. Logsdon has been working with the church and its preacher, Dr. Les Hollon, since 2011 to offer students the ability to work on a seminary degree in San Antonio. The facility has five new classrooms, faculty and staff offices and a student lounge.

Dr. Wally Goodman, Director of Seminary Programs in San Antonio said, “These new facilities will allow students the space necessary for the most important aspect of a seminary education: relationship building.”

The funds for the project were generously donated by the John and Eula May Baugh Foundation, the Logsdon Estate and many individual donors to Trinity Baptist Church.

The grand opening was attended by HSU President Eric Bruntmyer, Logsdon Dean Dr. Robert Ellis and many other administrators, staff, and students from both the Abilene and San Antonio campuses.

Logsdon Seminary has campuses across the state, including San Antonio, Valley Ranch (Dallas), McAllen, Corpus Christi and Lubbock where students can pursue a seminary degree from almost anywhere in Texas.
