Enhance Your Ministry Skills

Online Accredited Seminary Program

Diploma in Biblical Studies (DBS)

 


The Diploma in Biblical Studies focuses on the exposition of each book of the Bible, an overview of systematic theology, and selected ministry skills. The diploma is primarily designed for those who live in locations where the completion of General Education credits is difficult for various reasons such as cost or accessibility, but would still like to be trained for practical ministry. Therefore, to receive this diploma, students are not required to complete General Education courses.

We know you’re already in the trenches doing ministry, and we don’t want you to put that kingdom work on hold. We want you to learn where you live so you can serve where you are. And we believe it’s actually important for you to have a life along the way, so we’ve created a program timeline that you can pursue at a manageable pace.

EVERY STUDENT IS AN ETERNAL INVESTMENT

 

We value stewardship, and we work hard to ensure that the investment you make in your education yields the highest return at the lowest possible cost. Due to the generous support of our ministry partners, approximately 90% of each student’s education is subsidized by the gifts of God’s people, allowing us to offer quality theological education with a tuition rate that is 60% less than the seminary average.
