This program primarily taught through video instruction, as well as occasional in-person training. This program can be taken “for academic credit” or “not for academic credit.” Those pursuing academic credit will complete the BSC as a Certified Academic Program (CAP) which has been structured as the foundational program which can later be built on through further study provided by the Diploma in Expository Preaching (DEP) Certified Academic Program (CAP).
Purpose: The primary purpose of the Biblical Studies Certificate (BSC) program is to provide each student with a broad foundational level of knowledge of the Old and New Testaments as well as a survey of Christian Theology. Students are also equipped with the hermeneutical skills to effectively study and interpret the Bible.
Target: Men who are aspiring to or actively involved in pastoral leadership roles in local church ministries, whether ordained pastors, church planters, Sunday school teachers, missionaries, or Bible study leaders.
