San Pablo Presbyterian Theological Seminary Scholarships
in Mérida, Yucatán

About Our Partner


San Pablo Presbyterian Theological Seminary began in 1982 as a small seminary serving the Yucatán region of Mexico. It quickly reached out to serve the church in other parts of the country and is now using the internet as a complementary way of equipping men and women for ministry. The seminary is located in Mérida with extension programs in other cities. It trains pastors, educators, and musicians. Students come from all areas of Mexico and Central and South America. Funds are needed to provide scholarships to students willing to dedicate their lives in service to the Lord and who need assistance in funding their training. A contribution of $2,400 helps to provide a scholarship including room, board, tuition, and books for a student for one year. In June 2019, San Pablo Seminary entered into an agreement with the Global Reformed Seminary of Atlanta, GA and the United Christian Seminary of Los Angeles, CA to offer a Doctor of Ministry program. All the students in the program are graduates of the seminary’s bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.

The Impact

San Pablo Rector, Amos Cahuich Yam, wrote: “We celebrated our graduation service in June. We had thirty-six graduates: 22 in the Biblical Counseling program; 13 in Theology and 1 in Sacred Music – 20 of the graduates were female. Among those in attendance were representatives from the council of the Synod of Yucatán of the National Presbyterian Church of Mexico. San Pablo is leading the way in equipping church leadership that will make a difference in furthering the Kingdom of God. The faculty and students hope and pray that the Lord will use them to strengthen and expand his Kingdom, not only in Spanish-speaking countries but all over the world.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $9,600 for student scholarships.
