For a Diploma In MinistryAbba’s House School of Ministry is a division of Berea Bible Institute that allows a student to earn a Diploma in Ministry (awarded by Berea Bible Institute). The diploma program is a concentrated program of study consisting of a combination of Biblical studies and practical internships. The program is designed to equip the learner, through both coursework and hands-on experience, to be prepared to make an eternal impact in the Kingdom of God. Some students will continue on into professional ministry while others may become Kingdom men and women through other career choices. Either way, the AHSM/Berea Bible Institute will set the learner on the path to changing their world for Christ.
For Degreed Students
All Berea graduates who are not currently serving in a formal (paid) church staff position will be expected to complete one or more internships. The student’s internship will be designed to correspond to the student’s intended major, to the degree possible. A three credit hour internship course will consist of a minimum of 130 hours of actual work. Additionally, students will be required to complete a work journal and a summation of the entire experience. Students attending classroom courses in Hixson, TN will typically complete those internship assignments within the ministry of Abba's House in Hixson, TN. Distance Education students will determine an internship assignment with their academic advisor. The objective of the internship program is to gain direct insight into ministry-based vocations and to gain practical experience within a supervised practicum setting.
