The purpose of the International School of Theology is to equip and train ministers by providing high level education at a low price. The courses seek to provide the core essentials of what is needed for ministers to critically and meaningfully engage scripture, learn practical techniques for counseling and pastoral care, and to expand their creativity and/or skills in the preaching task. Though continued educated is highly encouraged, the minimal seven courses should enable ministers to serve the people of God with greater excellence.
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:3). Those who enroll in this program are like stars who shine brightly as they train others in righteousness.
The core value of the International School of Theology is to provide an environment of teaching and learning that empowers ministers to become more equipped for ministry. By providing instructors who are knowledgeable in their respective areas of study, it seeks to expand their understanding of scripture, provide practical wisdom for ministry and to provide an environment where inner transformational growth can take place as the Spirit of God intersects with their studies. Bibliographies are also provided in order to ensure people can continue their research and learning on any given topic.
The International School of Theology is a private Christian program underneath and operated by the Worldwide Fellowship of Independent Christian Churches.
In alignment with the overall vision of the Worldwide Fellowship of Independent Christian Churches, the primary goal of the school is to fulfill the second of the three mission goals of the organization: To equip the saints for building up the Body of Christ.
At this time the International School of Theology is not a program recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
