Berkshire offers two primary opportunities for training to those called to ministry. Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS) offers graduate level studies. The Ministry Training Institute (MTI) provides students with the opportunity for cohort study on the undergraduate level. We are committed to supporting students in the pursuit of their educational and ministerial goals. as they fulfill God’s call as Christian leaders.
Berkshire and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary have formed an extensive partnership that includes an Academic Chair, Advent Christian course offerings, scholarship funding, and access to the rare Adventual Collection of Americana. As a student in our program, you have access to all graduate and post-graduate degrees offered by this world-class seminary.
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.
