As of July 2016, 86% of Baptist Seminary of Kentucky graduates are currently serving in a ministry-related vocation. The majority work as pastors in local congregations; many also serve as chaplains and pastoral counselors. Those who do not enter into ministry make their livings in diverse fields while serving their churches as lay leaders. In short, BSK’s mission to prepare men and women for life and ministry in faithful witness to Jesus Christ is being borne out by our graduates in local churches throughout the region.
