Berkshire offers numerous opportunities for training to those called to ministry, or for those who desire to pursue educational enrichment. Course offerings through eBerkshire (our distance education program) provide learning opportunities that fit within your schedule and commitments. We are also committed to supporting students in the pursuit of their educational and ministerial goals as they fulfill God’s call as Christian leaders. This is done through our partnerships with Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and the Ministry Training Institute (MTI).

In partnership with the Advent Christian General Conference of America, Berkshire is planning to offer 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, apprenticeships in local churches, periodic face-to-face discussion with cohort members, remaining in your current setting/vocation, and graduating with ministerial credentials and a recognized certificate. This program is expected to launch in fall 2019. For more information click on the link below.
