Take control of your education and ministry preparation

We have many learning modules, programs, and established mediums through which our students learn. While learning is not at one’s leisure, we do offer programs for both ends of the spectrum in relation to the advancement of time in the books.

We have a module program that allows students to take and complete portions of a course or degree plan without having to do everything at once and we also have options where a student can take an entire module’s requirements and, with approval from their mentor, effectively carve out large portions of certain subjects quickly with intensive programs.

The Choice is Yours, The Help is Yours

For the rare student who is free to study all the time and invest a large portion of their calendar and resources for learning, we are able to assist you in planning your degree completion and in most situations, course work can be completed with personal assistance from faculty.

The whole world is on social media together, why can’t they be learning too?

As you’ll see quickly, GSTPS has venues, courses, class work, lectures, videos, digital classrooms, and much more. We have in class options, group options and of course, ONLINE LEARNING.  Getting a degree online is all the rave these days and in reality, we’re going to see more and more higher learning using online study and course work.  It’s more affordable, convenient and at times, easier to manage.

Not all of our classes can be done online and a select few of our degree programs are “in class” only, but mostly about 90% of everything we offer can be modified for online learning.

Our Online SEMINARY and THEOLOGICAL SCHOOL Strategy

Just as there are several places one can have a class: church, class room, living room, coffee shop, fire station, etc.; one can also have several different “venues” when considering online study. We offer course work through back-end services hosted with us on our servers and we also have chat rooms, video feeds, facebook “live” options, and even utilize skype or other medium, especially for international students.

So, relax, your online education isn’t going to cause you more aggravation, we want your theological and ministry preparation to be encouraging, inviting and transformational! Let us know you’re ready to get started online today!

If ever there was a time to work together, it is now…

The time for building something with greed in mind is over, so not only does Grace School of Theology and Pastor’s Seminary provide ample scholarships, but we also partner with many churches, colleges, seminaries, theologians, ministries and learning centers to make what we do possible. Our partnership mission is part of our core values and we find it vital to the longevity of not just success as in institution, but for the success of each student who vibrantly believes in our system of learning.

We are preparing to partner with many great ministries and many more are already connecting with our team as they give us insight, big and small, on how we can best accomplish our vision and goals!

Do you a qualified ministry, school, or church that may have some wisdom for us?  Then send them our way, we love to be in discussion on how we can teach God’s word and prepare God’s people.

Pastoral Oversight is a Must!

Our ARTERY of affiliation is the local church and more specifically, the shepherds of those congregations. If we desire to prepare those who shepherd, then we must be submissive to the oversight of those whom God has placed in that role. Therefore, our school discourages discussion relating to becoming “convention” led or “regionally accredited”. We are going to secure our ability to train men and women in God’s word for generations to come by first aligning with our founding Church as an arm of her ministry and second, keep a very close-knit group of pastors who will sit as trustees for centuries to come.  Well, the same pastors won’t, but someone will.

It’s MY WAY or the HIGHWAY!  I’m Sure you’ve heard that…

Two Areas:  ACADEMIC ABILITY & LEARNING STYLES

ACADEMIC ABILITY:
We don’t want to give the impression that we are not going to have strict standards, guidelines, firm deadlines and course requirements.  But when it comes to learning, not all people are at the same level academically.  Let’s consider a few examples to help us all get on the same page. For the sake of explanation, let’s come up with a few learning ‘types’ and talk about each one.

  • SCHOLARS – These are folks who love to read, write, learn, talk, test and just be involved in the whole aspects of academia. These learners are not scared of anything and they’re willing to stay up for days to get the bibliography done.
  • HOLARS – These guys are deep in the treads of the call to ministry, they love all things about truth and learning God’s word, but when the bell rang, “SCHOOL” let out. So they’ve dropped the “SC” from their mindset and they are just proclaiming the word, “Holars” are working in the trenches as missionaries, pastors, teachers etc. and they may or may not be inclined toward scholarship.
  • ARS – Ain’t Reading So…. (you all know we are joking around a little) but in reality there are some people who are called of God and are not inclined one bit to read, write papers or comprehend lectures. In 1 Corinthians 1, Paul teaches that the lowly and nothings of the world are the ones who “are” and will bring to “nothing” those that are… In the same way people were amazed at “unlearned” men when they saw the apostles. So there are times when we have to train those who don’t fit the mold of traditional learning.

So what’s the answer?

We have experts in the fields of education, learning disabilities, reading tutoring, and a plethora of other disciplines who are in place to assist in reading, comprehension, writing, language, ESL, and other areas of need. We also have academic superstars who work with missionaries around the world who train pastors and church leaders who have never seen a book.

These experts are ready to engage with the student who can’t read, who is unable to really write research and the one who is so scared of the idea of higher learning that they want to faint. The methods of such teaching and as important, evaluating the learning are specialized, so we won’t cover them here. Just rest assured that the learning and intensity of such will be to the same high standard as the valedictorian student. So, join us, tell your friends, and get started.

LEARNING STYLES

With a team of educators from across the globe, we have a great understanding of teaching a differentiated classroom. But what about the diversity of such things with all the mediums and venues? Well, let’s say that you feel you can do just about anything self-study or “mentored” learning is your style but when it comes to Greek, well, you HAVE to sit in a seat with someone.  OK, we will create a hybrid degree completion plan. That’s right, you are not stuck in ONLINE only, or classroom only. We will taylor your learning to what is best for your circumstances. Just remember, we need to get a good reason for “hybrid” modules as your mentor will have to keep watch over and assist you in every area.
