Postgraduate Studies

Pursue a Bachelor of Theology or a Masters Degree at our Seminary.


After listening to a profound preacher, you probably have wondered why you never saw what they are able to highlight from a familiar scripture.  Deep insights are a result of deep processing mostly achievable when one has been prepared to.  Post graduate studies introduce students beyond independent writing to critical and original thinking. As a specialist in a specific discipline, the fruit of such an exercise impacts the overall in other disciplines is compelling.  For this reason, I would highly recommend postgraduate studies because of the reflective processes and originality in thinking it contributes which has invaluable benefits for the candidate and future audience.
