As a student in our program, you have access to all certificate, graduate and post-graduate studies offered by this world-class seminary.
In partnership with the Advent Christian General Conference of America, Berkshire supports a training program for those called to be a local church pastor, church planter, missionary, or other ministry vocation. MTI is a 3.5 year, cohort-based training program centered in the local church. The benefits of this affordable program include a mentor throughout your time of study, face-to-face discussion with cohort members, while remaining in your current setting/vocation. Those who complete the two or three and a half year program receive a certificate. For more information click on the link below.
