An Effective & Affordable Option

It’s important to remember that many people have no access to seminary education, mostly due to the availability of adequate funding and/or personal circumstances. However, there is a hunger worldwide for learning the Bible, theology, and ministry skills, even becoming a pastor in a local church. Thousands of local pastors and individuals are currently serving as church leaders without any formal theological training. We now offer an affordable solution and option for those who want to study in the comfort of their own homes without attending a formal theological seminary or school. Decide today, and start pursuing your dream. Start studying for your certification and getting equipped has never been this easy.
