It is our desire to provide a solid biblical foundation to partner with the ministry training you will receive and to offer a quality and affordable college option at the same time. To accomplish this we have partnered with Ecclesia College, to offer online degrees to HTSM students at an affordable rate.

HTSM students that choose the college track are enrolled as full time Ecclesia College students, and participate in both online and in-class studies for the duration of the 2 years. Students will be instructed by Ecclesia professors in their online classes. While the majority of our students opt for the Associates in Biblical Studies, there are other options available here.

Ecclesia College is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE; formerly known as AABC). ABHE is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). For accreditation info click here.
