SERVE PRACTICALLY. Christ exemplified it; God commands it. Practice it practically, tangibly, selflessly (Eph. 6:7).
Grace Biblical Seminary is committed to helping you live out God’s calling by preparing you for ministry. Through world-class training, you’ll learn to correctly handle the Word of God and better understand your role in taking the Word to the world.

When you more fully grasp the power of the Word you’ll be able to speak to the issues of life with clarity, offering insight and hope to the world around you.
GBS offers a flexible course schedule which provides students the opportunity to maintain employment or continue in ministry while pursuing their education. GBS provides the opportunity of receiving academic training in a Christian atmosphere where faculty and staff desire to help students fulfill their life objectives.
GBS works in partnership with the local church as her training arm for leadership. Students are expected to be identified with a local church and to be faithful in attendance and ministry in that church. The collegiate atmosphere provides a source of encouragement and mutual interaction, but is not a replacement for the interaction and development of ministry skills found in the local church.
Church-Based Theological Education…
Grace Biblical Seminary is excited to offer the cutting edge of theological education by partnership with like-minded pastors and churches worldwide. The training of pastors, evangelists, missionaries and other church leaders according to the New Testament model… takes place in the local church setting. Much of the church has gotten away from this paradigm, and trains its future leaders by sending them to an educational institution away from the local body.
Our desire is to partner with pastors, church leaders and churches for the advancement of the gospel and in the training of servant-leaders for a variety of vocational and volunteer church-oriented ministries locally and worldwide. This partnership complements the ministry of local churches with Grace Biblical Seminary.
