We train those who are already in a leadership or teaching position in their local churches and ministries. Learning with us means that you can apply immediately your new insights in your own context.

You don’t have to travel and stay away from your work or family. Instead, you’ll learn continuously something to share with your audience.

We think it is just fair to offer an opportunity for theological studies to anyone who is engaged in God's ministry.

Admission Requirements

The admissions deal with three different criteria.

  • First, we have to evaluate if you can study in English. As an ESL/EFL* program we don't require perfection in language issues, but successful completion of the program will be possible only if you can read the required texts and write at an adequate level. We use the text in your application and correspondence as a basis for initial evaluation, and later we follow up your ability to use good English in your writing.
  • Secondly, we are interested in your life and service as a Christian. We will ask some questions about your role in a local church and larger ministry context. Because our resources are limited, we want to focus on students who can really benefit from the studies, and who can make a real difference in the Kingdom ministry.
  • Thirdly, we must take your academic background into consideration. In general, you need some formal higher education as your background, or alternatively, you must be able to demonstrate your ability for working consistently at a required level.

Before the call, I worked as a military officer of the rank of a Major. I had to resign my commission to pursue the calling. However, time has passed since the calling came and I have learned that I need to learn and know in depth more about God who I speak about, to become a better fisher of men than I do now.

    I found on your website something very interesting and makes sense. I want to be your partner or affiliate, or your representative in my country. I intend to help many people in my country who want to study abroad but it is very expensive.

    Is it possible if you can provide an offer in the form of prices for each level, for example how much you have to pay for Bachelor, Master and Doctorate.

    For your information , I have studied in the Philippines, America, Canada and Europe. I have Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate degrees. I understand the difficulties of following a traditional school. Your program is very interesting, of course many will follow because your program is still new in my country.

    If we can work together, that would be great.

    If anyone wants to contact me:

    email: gitapros@gmail.com

    Tel: 085156335868 My country code 62 (Indonesia)

    Expecting a positive answer from you.

    Yours faithfully

  16. I am an elder in a prayer group, which is lead by a Prophetess, who intends to ultimately form a church. I have always liked studying theology, but lack of finance impedes that. If given a chance, I would appreciate a certificate or diploma certificate course.
