ANSWERS TO SOME COMMON QUESTIONS
Q: WHEN DOES THE BIBLE MINISTRY SCHOOL START, AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
A: Our school is a 10-month program that starts in September and ends in June of the following year. There are four 9 week quarters in each school year. The program takes 4 years to complete.
Q: WHAT ARE THE TIME REQUIREMENTS FOR ATTENDING THE BIBLE MINISTRY SCHOOL?
A: Classes happen Monday evenings from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. Please plan to attend every class due to the condensed nature of the course. We do allow two absences each quarter, but classes missed must be made up via MP3 download by the following week with a written listening form submitted. Failure to make up missed classes will result in an “incomplete” grade for the class.
Q: CAN I ATTEND THE BIBLE MINISTRY SCHOOL IF I AM NOT A MEMBER OF A CALVARY CHAPEL?
A: You are not required to fellowship at a Calvary Chapel church in order to take classes at the school.
Q: CAN WOMEN APPLY FOR, AND ATTEND THE BIBLE MINISTRY SCHOOL?
A: The Bible Ministry School is not specifically designed as a pastoral training school, but a ministry training school. Therefore, both men and women can attend the school.
Q: IS STUDENT HOUSING AVAILABLE?
A: No, all students are responsible for their own housing.
Q: UPON COMPLETION, IS THERE AN ORDINATION OR A CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION?
A: Graduates earn a Certificate of Completion. We do not issue Certificates of Ordination.
Q: UPON COMPLETION, WOULD THERE BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE ON STAFF AT A CALVARY CHAPEL?
