"Day One" Ready: Proven Leaders
Degree Programs Offered
The initial degree program will be a Master of Arts in Biblical Leadership (MABL) that is offered in conjunction with and ATS accredited through our partnership with Northwest Seminary in Vancouver, Canada. Plans are to expand this program to prepare leaders for different ministry contexts include pastors, church staff, parachurch organizations, Christian businesses and organizations, military and hospital chaplains.
In terms of academic degrees, plans are to expand the education to additional levels, including specialized certificates, along with bachelor and doctoral degrees. BTI is currently constructing the Masters of Divinity (MDV) so that a student who completes the MABL will be able to continue if they desire without losing any credits into the MDV degree program. It will expand on the MABL without overlap. The MDV through BTI will provide students with additional training to equip leaders for vocational positions in ministry, such as service on a pastoral team of a church or to lead a parachurch ministry.

What Others are Saying about Getting their Degree through the Bullock Theological Institute
"The assignments are a mixture of traditional academic assignments and ministry experience assignments in a church which provided opportunities for me to more easily apply what I was learning and then debrief my experience with mentors. This was invaluable, especially now as a graduate and I no longer have that resource built into my life."
Lindsey Meyers - Fort Worth, TX
"I am very grateful this competency-based education was combined with real-time ministry training. As my knowledge grew, I could apply it immediately. This allowed the principles to sink deeply into my heart. My confidence as a minister of the gospel has grown dramatically and I'm more aware of how God designed me to fulfill my calling... For someone preparing for ministry, I'd encourage you to consider the Bullock Institute!"
