About the course
he Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Biblical and Pastoral Studies is your first step towards gaining pastoral skills for ministry within the Seventh-day Adventist Church. THE CONTENT of this course reflects the
Church’s conviction that successful ministry must be based on a deep knowledge of Scripture, an understanding of the Church’s history and mission, and competence in pastoral skills that are relevant to contemporary needs. THE INTERNATIONAL character of the Adventist Church and the multicultural context in which the Church operates, require great diversity in ministry, both on the educational and pastoral levels. This course is designed to meet these challenges. IT IS ALSO a foundational step towards our
postgraduate Theology course which gives you
the opportunity to focus on biblical or pastoral studies, and is the basic criteria for employment with the Trans-European Division.
