Ministerial Formation Program

Our passion is to be an instrument in the hands of God of teaching and transformation in the lives of our students. Our mission is to perpetuate the history of God through theological education in Spanish so that the people of God do not forget His works.


For those students who wish to complete an academic degree with the goal of pursuing master's studies, the Ministerial Training Program offers a 60-credit Diploma. This diploma can be in Pastoral Studies or in Counseling. Upon completion of the diploma, the student has the opportunity to apply for admission to a theological seminary for master's studies.


The program is recognized as equivalent to a baccalaureate (or bachelor's degree), and opens the way for master's studies.
