Welcome to
Esther Theological Seminary 

Esther Theological Seminary of Malabar is a nonprofit 501(c) 3.  This seminary was founded by Bishop Dr. Pauline Borland and is unique in that it was founded by the only female Bishop to have registered and started a  seminary school in Brevard County Florida.  The seminary is located in central Florida approximately one hour from the Kennedy Space center.  Our motto is " Soaring Like a Rocket to Higher Heights" so we have adopted the space shuttle Columbia as a symbol of what we do.
