Our Academic Life
Emphasis on Biblical Language
A special emphasis is given for the Biblical languages such as Greek and Hebrew. Students will be taught the basic elements and advanced level of New Testament Greek grammar. They will also be trained both in basic and advanced level in Hebrew.
Modular and Regular Classes
The B.Th., M.A in Biblical studies and the M.A in Transformational Urban Leadership programs have modular classes primarily for those in the ministry but who do not have any training. The M.Div and M.Th program are instituted as residential programs. The focus of these programs is to ensure the development of strong evangelical and sound Biblical theological leaders.
