Housed at Elizabethtown College since its inception in 1993, Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center delivers training and continuing education for Church of the Brethren ministry and lay leadership. We offer classes in the ACTS and TRIM certificate programs, host graduate courses for Bethany Theological seminary, and organize continuing education events. SVMC works in close partnership with Bethany Theological Seminary, Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership and five Church of the Brethren districts: Atlantic Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Middle, Southern, and Western Pennsylvania.
Now entering its third decade of service, SVMC has adopted a new logo. The image and tagline express the vitality of ministry education and our deep roots in Brethren heritage and the living Christ.
