Coventry Building College

Level 1 - Diploma in Biblical Studies

Coventry Bible College offers both Level 1 and Level 2 courses

 

The purpose of the Level One Diploma curriculum is to build a solid foundation of the Word of God into your life and to train and equip you to accomplish your God given destiny. The curriculum is very much centred on our core values of faith, the authority of the believer and how to be led by the Holy Spirit.

 

The Level Two Advanced Diploma in Ministry then builds upon the foundation laid during the Level One training and goes a little deeper into the more practical aspects of ministry.

 

The Level One curriculum is very much centred on and around our core values, our DNA if you like, of faith, the believer’s authority and how to be led by the Holy Spirit.

The Level Two curriculum aims to train and equip students for ministry and leadership. It is important that each student receives a good understanding of “what he believes” and “why he believes it.”Focus is very much centred on and around our core values, our DNA if you like, of faith, the believer’s authority and being led by the Holy Spirit.

 

What you learn during this time should impact and alter your lifestyle in a biblical way and thereby increase your fruitfulness in The Kingdom.

The purpose of the Level One Training is to ground every student in the fundamentals of our faith, thereby bringing everyone onto the “same page”.

 

After completing the Level One Diploma in Biblical Studies, the student is then eligible to attend any future Level One Diploma class they have already successfully passed at no charge. If new subjects are offered in the future as part of Level One, the student may attend at no charge but will be required to purchase any textbooks required for the class. We ask that Level One Diploma holders please contact the…

Helps Ministry

Each student is required to fulfil a minimum of 100 hours Helps Ministry Requirement (HMR) in his/her home church under the oversight of their church leaders. Hours served must be recorded on an HMR form and signed off by a church leader.

By getting involved in different areas of their respective local churches, students will learn the character and discipline required in serving.  They will experience some of the practical sides of ministry that cannot be duplicated in a classroom setting, and have the opportunity to practically apply the knowledge of the Word they have gained at Bible College as well as being a blessing to their local church.

 

100 hours must be completed by the end of each of the two year courses in order to graduate.
