Thirty total credit hours required.
The Ministers Diploma is an eighteen months theological program designed to prepare students for a Christ-centered ministry as Pastors and Ministers. Under the instruction of academically and spiritually qualified instructors, students receive a sound knowledge of the Word of God and worship.
A student must complete 80 credit hours of study in order to qualify for a ministers diploma and to apply for licensing.
Before looking at the Bachelors program, we have outlined here the recommended “Standard Programs” which leads up to all Bachelors programs. Similar to building a house, you must start from the bottom up. A strong foundation will lend to a strong building when completed.
Required or Core Courses: It has been determined by the Board of Regents that every Bible College Student must complete certain Core courses. These courses must be a part of a Bachelors program with courses taken from SBIS or another recognized institution.
