The Biblical Training Institute is not an accredited seminary, but it does offer a world-class seminary level education for those who want to learn and be prepared for ministry within the relational context of the local church.
There is a movement in the church today to train their future leaders within the relational context of a local church and under the mentorship of a practicing pastor. These classes are designed specifically for that scenario. Of course, anyone who wants to learn is welcome, but we strongly recommend that you do so with someone else. Learn together. Grow together. Have someone to ask questions, test application.
We are delighted to see some of the traditional seminaries moving this direction, and if you want a degree you can get an excellent education from them.
