(A Graduate College of Theology & Ministry)
Bethel Christian University
The University concept of Theological Education is a response to the often heard comment, “my college and seminary training was not practical for the real world. It just didn’t prepare me for the ministry”. This impractical approach to education is usually the result of course and programs which are designed and implemented by individuals who do not have ministerial experience and training. This is the “Ivory Towers” approach to education. To make education practical for the real world, Bethel Christian University offers courses of study and degree programs created by individuals who are recognized as experienced experts in their respective areas of knowledge.
Candidates must be in the field of religion. They must be contributors in one way or another to the fields of Ministry, Theology, Teaching, Writing, Counseling or related interests. Candidates must have been active in their respective fields for a period of one year. Candidates must meet the same requirements to enter the University.
For individuals with specific ministry requirements, the University offers a variety of specializations, which may be taken as either a minor or major concentration in a degree program.
DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAMS
We have made provisions for those who have the call of God but at present unable to attend full-time or part-time courses.
Our proven concept of practical College training is channeled through a variety of subjects, and degree programs. These are implemented by a qualified and experience extension faculty, which will be involved with you in every course of study. The final result is a degree program which is a genuine learning experience and immediately applicable to your specific ministry. Because you study at your own pace, you can begin at any time for extension, and correspondence courses. Why not decide today to add a new dimension to your life and ministry.
