Licensed Professional

Overview

The purpose of the Licensed Professional (LP) program is to offer core, graduate-level education for ministry leadership. Although not a degree program, denominational path to ordination or licensure, it does provide foundational educational experiences and studies beneficial for service in Bible-based, Christ-centered ministry leadership. Fundamental skills and topics studied include hermeneutics, church history and theology, ministry leadership, public speaking/teaching, and spiritual formation, as well as a survey of all 66 books of the Bible and in-depth studies of numerous biblical books. Students earn 3-hour, graded credit by attending and participating in course sessions, turning in all regular assignments, and taking the final exam. By participating at this level, students can retain the option to apply their credit hours toward a graduate degree program should they desire to do so.

LP Objectives 

  1. The seminary will teach, and the student will understand and be able to exposit and explain all the book(s) of the Bible covered in program in addition to the specific book(s) of the Bible for a specific course.

  3. The seminary will teach and the student will come to understand how the 7 core values of The Bible Seminary impact their program, courses, life, and future work.

LP Outcomes

  1. The student will demonstrate a knowledge of the thematic, chronological, and geographical flow of the entire Bible through the SFM 500 final exam. 

  2. The student will demonstrate the ability to teach/preach expository and thematic messages as evidenced by assessed classroom speaking assignments. 

  3. The student will demonstrate a knowledge of counseling and leadership skills through final exams in PAS 501 and PAS 511. 

Core Courses 

Electives Courses

This 9-course, 27-credit hour program is designed to offer vital, graduate-level education. Although this program includes the core classes for all TBS degree programs, it is not a degree program, a denominational path toward ordination, or state licensure, but does provide foundational educational experiences and studies beneficial for anyone serving or who wants to serve in Bible-based, Christ-centered ministry leadership.

The ELECTIVE options (2 credits) offer students a wide range of Bible-based experiences and opportunities to reinforce applied learning and skills, as well as allow some flexibility to tailor the program to meet individual needs and interests while maintaining educational standards. Most courses are also eligible for CEU credit through the Association of Christian Schools International (ASCI).
