AST is incorporated in the State of Louisiana to grant Masters and Doctorate degrees.
ATS's professors have degrees from accredited schools.
'As the president and founder, my vision is to educate through our degree programs future professors
to teach for Apostolic Theological Seminary.'
- Dr. Klein
Thus, if you are lead by Jesus Christ to be a Bible professor, let us educate you to teach for ATS.
We always need professors to teach courses to seminarians overseas.
What is the value of obtaining
an accredited seminary degree?
We know of two graduates of a UPCI seminary with a Master of Divinity degree, an accredited degree.
Upon graduation, they could not find a church to pastor. They were relegated to planting a church from scratch.
What is the only benefit of obtaining an accredited degree?
The only value is if you were to teach in an accredited state school or an accredited seminary. There is very little requirement for Apostolics in either.
The church doesn't care if you have an accredited degree or not.
Both of the seminarians listed above are over $50,000. in debt. Yet, they are planting a church where they must work a secular job to payoff their seminary debt and provide funding for the church they are planting.
Is the Seminary Really Accredited?
Apostolic seminaries can make statements.
Some seminaries claim accreditation, but aren't truly accredited.
If you were to contact an accredited seminary or graduate school to transfer the Apostolic school in question degrees' or credits', one needs to ask if its degrees or credits would transfer?
Another test of accreditation - can you receive government loans for their degree programs?
If you can't receive government money - loans or grants, it is not accredited.
Apostolic seminaries and colleges claim accreditation, but they are not accredited?
"As a seminarian at Grand Rapids Baptist Seminary, I received Guaranteed Student Loans.
Why? Because it is truly accredited." - Dr. Klein
Anyone can get another school or Apostolic organization to state/give their accreditation!
