Do you want to be trained to respond relationally, biblically, and immediately to those you see around you in need? Do you want to train for ministry where you are? Do you want to be challenged to grow deeper theologically? Are you concerned about the cost of seminary education? If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, Birmingham Theological Seminary’s new Master of Arts in Biblical Theology may be just right for you. 

This part-time, four-year program is being offered in partnership with our friends at Third Millennium Ministries. Our program is designed to integrate courses, maximize video conference opportunities with Pastor/Scholars, and to apply deep reformed biblical studies with a ministry focus. The cost is a fraction of the national average per credit hour, allowing students to learn without worrying about debt and to passionately pursue the calling God has laid on their lives.
