The Riley Center


The Mission of the Riley Center is to further the influence and ministry of Southwestern Seminary in providing theological education for individuals engaging in Christian ministry through two avenues.  We first seek to equip the saints for works of service to the building up of the body of Christ and second we seek to maximize the effectiveness of the institution by offering quality meeting space to churches, non-profits, and local businesses with professional service while promoting the mission of the institution.

Meeting Space

Located within the Riley Center is the W.P. Collier Conference Center that offers 12 flexible rooms which provide 55,000 square feet of conference space, seating a total of 1,200.
