SATS was planted by the Lonehill Village Church. Although the seminary is an independent organisation, the church continues to play a prominent role in governance at the Board level.

The South African Theological Seminary is governed by a Board of Directors that meets four or five times each year. The Directors are committed followers of Jesus Christ. They bring a diverse skill set and extensive business experience to ensure that SATS is well governed.
