Future leaders


The Bonhoeffer Haus works with Southeastern Seminary, Wake Forest, NC, to offer a unique seminary experience in the local church. We train future leaders through: 1) theological formation, 2) ministry apprenticeship, and 3) life together. We serve, live, eat, work, study, pray, and play together.


Each student is a member of an active cohort. We have three cohorts: Roanoke Valley, New River Valley, and Richmond, VA.

If you are interested in learning more, please contact the person in your area:

Roanoke Valley         Allen James

New River Valley        Jesse Furey

Richmond                Pete Schemm



Apprentices get hands-on ministry experience, while spending time in a mentoring relationship with one of our pastors or ministry leaders. If you are a sensing a call to vocational ministry, we believe the best place to begin training is in the context of the local church. We offer apprenticeships in the following ministry areas:

  • Church Planting
  • Pastoral Ministry
  • Missions
  • Worship
  • Students
  • Children
  • Media
  • Administration

We also offer both summer and year-long unpaid internships. Learn more about internships
