Grace Biblical Seminary is excited to partner with like-minded pastors and Christian leaders. It’s a partnership for the advancement of the gospel of grace and training the next generation of pastors, teachers, evangelists, missionaries, and Christian leaders for a variety of vocational and volunteer church-oriented ministries locally and worldwide.
The Partnership is Design:

  • To partner with pastors and faithful Christian leaders in their churches and ministries 
  • the equipping of the saints.
  • To prepare academically trained students for real-world ministries.
  • To develop rich relationships between Grace Biblical Seminary and partnering churches and para-church organizations.
The Model for Theological & Ministry Education

You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. You therefore must endureNo one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. The hardworking farmer must be first to partake of the crops. Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things” (2 Timothy 2:1-7).

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. GBS will help you take your church back to the New Testament paradigm of pastors and church leaders training and mentoring church members in advanced theological knowledge and practical ministry skills.
Academic programs are rigorous and challenging. We provide the resources, courses, delivery system, and MORE. All you need to do is USE THEM! You merely recruit the students, provide a place to meet one night per week, and allow us to use your teaching skills to lead the sessions.
You will have an opportunity (if needed or desired) to earn a degree or finish one at a nominal cost. Church members may choose to take courses for a specific ministry certificate or a full undergraduate or graduate degree. Think of the excitement a program like this can produce in your church.
It’s A Very Simple Concept:
It’s a straightforward concept. You use your skills, or the skills of a qualified staff member, to teach courses in which GBS provides the content. You review the online material as you prepare to lead the sessions. Again, all you do is recruit, provide space, and train the people. Imagine the possibilities!
