Our student leaders are an integral part of our Student Life team and an extension of our office in the student body. We believe that when a student has a great experience here, they stick around and feel a sense of belonging and purpose for their time at Denver Seminary.


We are looking for people who have a heart to creatively impact the seminary culture, intentionally cultivate relationships with fellow students, and who desire to be personally challenged and professionally developed as leaders. If that describes you, check out these opportunities for engagement.


The Student Leadership Board (SLB) is a group of six students who function as an extension of the Student Life Department for the benefit of the seminary and its students. This critical leadership team exists to develop leaders that will serve as a bi-directional line of communication between the student body and administration and address student priorities through welcoming new students, listening to the needs of the student body and responding through advocacy, programming and resources. The Student Leadership Board is a chance to make a difference in the lives of students and impact the student experience!

The Community Advisors (CAs) are a group of four students who live in the on-campus apartments and function as an extension of the Student Life Department for the benefit of the seminary and its students. Student Life focuses on caring for students holistically, helping to mitigate challenges that may impact a students’ ability to continue at Denver Seminary, and providing spaces for students to connect and cultivate a sense of belonging. As student representatives living in the on-campus apartments, the Community Advisors will be developed as leaders who influence their community by modeling good neighboring and encouraging connection.
