Sioux Falls Seminary became Kairos University in October 2021 after the seminary’s Kairos Project opened the door to new ways of thinking about the developmental journey of students. The launch of Kairos University has enabled schools, churches, ministries, and businesses to work together in extraordinary ways.

The school’s journey began in 1858 when Rochester Theological Seminary in New York established a German Department and appointed a new faculty member as its head. In the 1930s and 40s, the churches of the North American Baptist (NAB) Conference, formerly known as the German Baptists, were spreading westward through the prairies and to the west coast. So in 1949 the seminary, having changed its name to North American Baptist Seminary, relocated to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, As a result of its location and unique approaches to theological education that kept Jesus at the center of teaching and learning, the school grew to serve several different denominations with the NAB remaining its primary connection to the local church. In 2014, the seminary launched the Kairos Project which eventually led to the formation of Kairos University. As a founding Legacy Partner of Kairos University, Sioux Falls Seminary is passionate about developing followers of Jesus who flourish in their vocations.
