Undergraduate Studies  

The ITCT has tried to present a program of undergraduate studies that will heop ministers and lay persons interested in ministry.  This will be done through the Diploma of Biblical Studies & Ministry for 30 hours, The Associate of Ministry Degree for 60 hours, or the Bachelor of Ministry degree for 120 semester credit hours.  Hopefully the ITCT can help persons begin their religious training through knowledge in: Ministry, Church Administration, Preaching, Christian or Pastoral Counseling, and Theology.  Every Christian is called as an Ambassador of Christ to bring others into a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ. This program will assist the undergraduate level minister to lead persons into that right relationship.

 Life and Ministry Credit is available up to 60 semester Credits at the undergraduate level.   There is no charge for this service but we will require documentation to accompany your application. 

Transfer Credits combined with Life & Ministry Credit will be considered on a per student basis.  These credits can be granted for only the undergraduate diploma and degrees.  .
