OUR DIVERSITY = OUR GREATEST STRENGTH

Each graduating class gives us the opportunity to embrace diversity in our cultures and marrying them with Christianity and through the study of preaching.

Participating Schools

Participants interested in the program apply through o­ne of these seminaries. O­nce admitted, participants pay tuition to their particular seminary and graduate from that seminary.
