The Graduate Diploma provides foundational biblical education for those in support roles or non-vocational ministries. It is ideal for Elders and lay leaders who are seeking to improve their understanding of Scripture. It is not intended for those in vocational pastoral or teaching ministries.
The Graduate Diploma also provides seminary studies on a trial basis for persons who wish to test their gifts and skills with a view toward further preparation for full-time Christian ministry. Graduate Diploma course work may later be applied toward a master’s degree program.
