Diploma in Ministry Studies – $99

One of the best kept secrets is the two-year Diploma in Ministry Studies program.  Numerous ministry leaders think they are locked out of seminary education because they don’t have a college degree. The DMS is a non-degree program for those over the age of 25 and who don’t have a college degree, but desire ministry training without having to take general education courses. The well-rounded program biblical and theological program includes Bible courses, theology courses, church history, how to study the Bible, as well as practical courses that will enhance your ministry.  The cost for the 39 hr. program is $99/credit hour or $3,986 plus books.
