Bachelor of Divinity
The Bachelor of Divinity (BDiv) Program, by emphasizing the centrality of the Word of God, prepares students to be a witness for Christ in the culture that they are called to minister to (primarily Haitian culture) and the contemporary world by giving students a thorough grounding in the truth of God’s word and teaching the Bible in the context of its setting, demonstrating the relevance of the authority of the Bible today. The BDiv program also focuses on developing leaders for the ministry of discipleship and formation—understanding the biblical, educational, and organizational principles at the foundations of effective ministry.
Upon completion of the BDiv, students will:
- Understand and exemplify the holy, loving, and humble character of Christ necessary for eligibility for Christian ministry;
