Evangelical School of Divinity

After years of college and seminary training I know the quality of scholarship and academic preparation that can be found at a school of divinity such as ours. We are an institution that seeks excellence in all we teach and do.

We are committed to academic, social and spiritual excellence because we are interested in the development of the whole person for service in the Kingdom of God. In order to face the challenges of ministry in today's world, a person needs more than just an education, as vitally important as that is that is why we are also interested in the character of your life and the commitment of your walk.

We are looking for kingdom servants, men and women who want an education that is biblically sound and with academic excellence and men and women who can appreciate a commitment to pursue excellence-academically, morally and spiritually in their lives.

Due to the vast number of men and women that God is calling into ministry in these last days, we are preparing a distance learning segment of our university to assist them. We realize that not everyone can move and attend college or seminary; therefore, we offer a distance- learning program on the undergraduate and graduate level where a degree can be acquired while maintaining local residency.

At the present time, on the graduate level, we are offering, a Th.M., Th.D., and M.Div. degree programs, more programs on the graduate level will be offered later as we are able to expand our services. The above degrees will be offered both here at the University and via distance learning.

We will be setting our Web site up so that the prospective student can do it all via the Internet. You will be able to make application, receive your acceptance letter and then be able to download the appropriate lesson material to your specific degree program.

We will be fine-tuning our distance-learning program of study to accomodate the computer and internet changes and keep our education as excellent as possible.

I encourage you to check us out for your Biblical training, come and experience the difference here at SPCU! Please feel free to contact me personnaly for further information concerning your educational needs.
