Be equipped to spread the Word to the nations

We know that the Lord works miraculously through Scripture, and that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. So if you feel the Lord’s calling to “go into all the world and preach the Gospel” to those who have never heard or read the Bible in their own language, start by arming yourself with the proper training: learn how to read and interpret the Bible in its original languages.

Program Overview

The bulk of your time in this program will be spent learning Hebrew and Greek, the languages that the Old and New Testaments were written in. Why? In order to translate Scripture into the indigenous languages of those whom you are ministering to, you must start from the original text.

In addition to translating the Bible, your coursework will include an in-depth exploration of the Old Testament, the New Testament, and Christian Doctrine. To complete your well-rounded studies, you’ll also delve into anthropology, communications, and missions to gain the basic skills necessary to work in a variety of mission settings.

What to Expect
The greatest benefit of this program is that you get to combine areas of study that compliment each other. By studying biblical languages, Christian doctrine, and missions, you gain diverse training that applies in many different areas of service. Each component of your training will support and enhance your ability to serve Christ—no matter what continent you find yourself on!
