Global Frontier Missions has partnered with Covenant Theological Seminary to offer Associate, Bachelor, Master and Doctorate of Ministry in Intercultural Studies degrees. Online MTS students must complete all coursework, pass all assignments and tests with at least a C average, and complete ministry hours to earn their Bible degree.
Global Frontier Missions developed a lot of the curriculum for the Covenant Theological Seminary Intercultural Studies program. In exchange for developing the degree program, CTS graciously allows GFM online missionary training school graduates to transfer their credit from the MTS to their institution for credit. The missionary training school actually includes all of the material from the following CTS courses:
[+] SA 5103 Could You Not Tarry One Hour (3 hours)
