Program Overview

OBJECTIVES:

"To equip the saints for the work of ministry"

Embassy School of Ministry offers a 2 year program of concentrated study and leadership training designed to spiritually equip believers for active service in the local church. Integrating classroom instruction with "hands-on" ministry experience.

CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION

We offer a program of study integrating five cores of academic study: Bible Survey, Applied Discipleship, Church Life, Ministry Skills and Leadership Core. Each course will meet for one hour per week for six weeks.

WORK-SERVICE

This core is an applied skills program. It requires a minimum of two hours of mentored, on-the-job training each week in one of the ministry arms of the local church.

BIBLE REQUIREMENTS

Each student will memorize 72 selected verses from Scripture plus read and complete a Devotional Workbook on the entire Bible.


Each of these requirements are an integral part of the program of study, therefore a prerequisite for graduation.

PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING

As a rule, instruction in Embassy School of Ministry is long on practical application. It is our desire to raise up an army of Christ centered workers who will impact their world for Jesus. Each course at the School of Ministry will concentrate on two aspects of instructional need:

  1. Content: To be "conversant" in different aspects of Christian service, each student will be supplied with a "working knowledge" of the various aspects of ministry.

  2. Application: The Bible Institute is a bottom-line school of ministry training. All instruction will emphasize a "hands-on", practical application of Biblical truths and principles.

Admission

Embassy School of Ministry is open to any believer who has a desire to grow in the things of God.

However, if you have only recently committed your life to Christ, it is recommended that you first complete a Christian Basics course or its equivalent.

FEES:

$22 per course - 1/2 price for spouses

Fees are due the first night of class. You may elect to use our deferred payment plan: one-half due the first night of class, one-half due the fourth night of class.

The price of textbooks, if required, is the responsibility of the student.

No refunds.

GRADUATION

Graduation from the School of Ministry will be held at the end of each two-year cycle at a special service of the church.

Each graduate will receive a diploma of achievement plus special recognition by the pastoral staff and their local church congregation.
