Ministries come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing remains constant... The desire to reach people. As the challenges of ministry change, the core goals for our students remain the same:
- Train missional leaders that facilitate entrepreneurial innovation
- Encourage thoughtful dialogue in a culturally diverse inter-denominational context
- Promote unity and relationships through an interactive classroom experience
These distinct features are why numerous students have chosen BTS to successfully improve their current ministries, and start new ones.
Following Jesus Into the World
Every incoming student has a unique story of how God is shaping their lives. We believe that your story is our story. We believe that our biblically based training can help better prepare you to Follow Jesus Into the World.
Steps to Becoming a BTS Student
BTS is a graduate institution and therefore all of our programs require a completed undergraduate degree from an accredited institution. An exemption may be granted on a case-by-case basis.
Please note some of our advanced programs have additional qualifications.
CHOOSE A PROGRAM THAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU
You may already have a specific program in mind to start, or you may still be trying to discern your calling. Now is the time to see how we can help you achieve your learning goals. Please browse our website, talk to an admissions team member, schedule a visit to our campus, or even meet our dedicated faculty.
COMPLETE AND SUBMIT APPLICATION
Now is the time to begin your application. Our helpful admissions team is here to guide you through the application process.
Prospective students are invited to submit an application for admission up to one year in advance of anticipated enrollment, and we request that all applications are submitted and completed no later than one month in advance of anticipated enrollment.
When using our online application, you will be prompted to create an account prior to beginning the process. This allows you to save your progress and return to the online system at a later date to upload forms and documents that you have completed.
As always you may reach out to our amazing admissions staff who can help you with any questions you may have.
LOOK INTO FINANCIAL AID
BTS will work with you to create a financial aid plan that will help you realize your educational goals. We do this through various student payment plans and through a variety of financial aid opportunities including scholarships, grants, discounts, and federal student loans.
Before applying for financial aid, you should access your personal financial situation, including funds saved for education and your support network. A support network may include your home church, denomination, people to whom you have ministered, friends, family, clubs, and foundations.
We also believe no qualified student should be discouraged from pursuing seminary for merely financial reasons. We have established our financial aid program to supplement your own financial resources.
