Discover Evangel Theological Seminary

  ETS has a rich history of providing a Biblically based, theologically sound curriculum, with the goal of offering a quality education to a wide spectrum of students. We are passionate about presenting an affordable theological education which is both accessible and flexible with regards to today’s busy lifestyles. The course structure is designed to "fit” both those who are seeking a theological degree, as well as those who are primarily interested in non-degree programs.


A few years ago we found that many lay leaders, Sunday school teachers and others desired to have additional theological training, withot pursuing a degree. To meet this growing demand, Evangel Seminary developed the School of Practical Ministry (SOPM). This non-degree program, offered over 24 weeks, allows students of all ages to deepen their knowledge of the Scriptures without committing to an unrealistic schedule of study.


Beginning in 2009, Evangel has also had the privilege of teaching the SOPM to hundreds of pastors and leaders in Africa where there is severely limited access to theological training.

Extraordinary Testimony From Cameroon Africa

Recently, ETS received a powerful letter from Dr. Julius Esunge who is a University Professor here in the U.S. and who oversees the ministry of Hope Outreach International. HOI is a ministry focused on evangelizing the lost, empowering those in need, as well as equipping ministers in Cameroon, Africa. Dr. Esunge has been instrumental in opening opportunities for the School of Practical Ministry to be taken to that nation. Here is what he said in his letter: click here for more.

School of Practical Ministry

It has been our great privilege and joy to take a program initially developed for students in the U.S. and see it also used by the Lord to illuminate the hearts and minds of men and women overseas; men and women who are desperate for structured training which is both Biblically based and theologically sound.

Many adults of all ages have taken and greatly benefited from the School of Practical Ministry here in the U.S. as well.

Our next School of Practical Ministry in the U.S. is scheduled to begin in September. If you would like more details, click here.

On-Line Distance Learning: Previously, we have primarily only offered the School of Practical Ministry to those who live within a short driving distance of our Harrisonburg, VA. campus. However, we are now pleased to be able to offer the SOPM course to anyone in the U.S. who would like to take this dynamic program. This is done in real time via a live video/audio stream.
