The Diploma of Advanced Biblical Studies (Dip. ABS)constitutes 96 credit hours of ministry and biblical studies with a minimum of 30 credit hours taken from BBI.The Dip. ABS program is designed to train leaders for full time vocational ministry within the Grace Movement. Understanding that God directs individuals into different types of ministry, we have designed four specific tracks that will allow a student to study in the field where they believe God is leading them. The Dip. ABS is offered in Pastoral Studies (for men only), Missions, Christian Education, and Interdisciplinary Studies. The Dip. ABS includes the same curriculum as the Bachelor of Ministry program but does not require 30 credit hours general education to be transferred.
