The Program

RHEMA Bible Training Centre is a two-level Programme of Study consisting of Level One – Biblical Studies and Level Two – Christian Ministry.

Intakes and RBTC Schedule
Students may begin their study at the September or Winter Intakes. Should an applying student miss either intake due to extenuating circumstances, RBTC now offers a Flexible Admission Process.

RBTC is a part-time college, meeting on selected weekends (Friday evening and all day Saturday), throughout the year. In addition, there are two week-long conferences held, typically in February and August. Level One consists of 26 weekends of study, typically taking 2 years to complete. Level Two consists of 17 weekends of study and may be completed in 1 year.

Practical Ministry Requirement (PMR)
At RBTC, we believe in the local church, and therefore require students to serve in their local churches throughout the duration of their study. We believe the spiritual discipline and heart of servitude developed through service in the local church is vital in the preparation of believers for Christian service. Practical service involves serving in areas such as Car Park Attendants, Greeters, Ushers, Praise and Worship Team, Nursery Care, Children’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Technical Support, Hospitality, Facility Care, etc., and should be rendered monthly.

  • Level One PMR is 100 hours, to be served over the duration of this two-year course of study.
  • Level Two PMR is 75 hours, to be served over the duration of this one-year course of study.

Level One – Biblical Studies

A strong biblical foundation should never be underestimated, and is the key to building for success in your life, family, career, and ministry. RBTC’s curriculum is designed with a strong emphasis on establishing students in the fundamental principles of God’s Word, in a structured and disciplined atmosphere, which will stretch you and challenge you to grow spiritually. The Authority of the Believer, Aspects of Grace, Faith Foundations, Bibliology, Ecclesiolgy, Life of Honour, Biblical Finance and Christ the Healer, are just some of the subjects offered in our Level One Programme.

Upon successful completion of Level One, you will receive a Certificate of Completion in Biblical Studies, and you will be considered to be a RHEMA Alumnus.

Level Two – Christian Ministry
The Level Two curriculum emphasizes the practical aspects of ministry, building on the Level One Programme, with advanced biblical study and intensive course work. RBTC supplements the classroom experience with hands-on training and a variety of national and international guest speakers. Emphasis is placed on the following ministry areas: Pastoral, Missions, Evangelism, Children, Youth, and Supportive Ministries.

Upon successful completion of Level Two, you will receive a Diploma in Christian Ministry.
