The Gateway Seminary San Francisco Campus


Eric Thomas Garland of Lufkin, Texas, is media director for the First Baptist Church in Bryan. This position involves overseeing all media of the church, from production and creative planning to sound and video. After accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of four, Eric Thomas Garland devoted his life to his Savior. He settled in Lufkin, Texas, after earning his master's in theology from Golden Gate Theological Seminary in 2014.

Golden Gate Theological Seminary, now known as Gateway Seminary, operates five traditional campuses in four states, including Colorado, Arizona, Washington, and California. California’s San Francisco Campus (SFC) is located in Fremont, in San Francisco’s South Bay area. While the original Northern California seminary was founded in 1944, the SFC was established in 2016 on land donated by a local church called Discovery Church. One of the key goals of the seminary is to enable students to receive theological training while concurrently serving in the ministry.

Five degrees are offered at the San Francisco Campus: master of divinity, master of arts in educational leadership, master of theological studies, diploma in theology, and diploma in educational leadership.
