The Berean School of the Bible is a program of study at Diploma Level. Programs are divided into Sequences. On conclusion of all Sequences, in either the Ministerial Studies or Bible and Doctrine Studies, the student will receive a Diploma. This is an American Diploma. (It is not an undergraduate level program – you will find undergraduate Diplomas in chapter 5 of this Prospectus). ‘Adult Continued Education’ diplomas are an excellent basis for lay persons wishing to be a active in the pulpit ministry of their church. These courses can be done fully online or with printed study guides. The electronic formats are in PDF, ePub or Kindle. Although these are diploma level, Global University offers a transfer of 1 credit per subject completed (with a minimum grade of 80%) into the elective component of our undergraduate programs.

As the student completes each sequence of the Ministerial Studies Program, the student is awarded a Certificate. On completion of the Ministerial Studies program (all the sequences), the student will have mastered basic Bible content (Old and New Testaments), theological principles, and practical ministry skills for service in a church leadership position. Level One (Sequence 1) equips a student with a working knowledge of Bible study methods, New Testament content, Pentecostal doctrine and basic skills needed to begin serving in a ministerial role in the local church. By completion of Level Two (sequence 2) of the Ministerial Certificate a student will have studied specific Bible content, systematic theology, and ministry skills. Level Three (sequence 3) introduces the more difficult books of the Bible, advanced theological concepts, and administrative skills required for many ministerial roles.
