Missionary Certificate Track
Theological training that serves the mission.
There is an opportunity today to reimagine the approach to theological education.
The traditional model of relocating to a seminary campus for 3-4 years has, historically, been the standard. This model continues to be helpful. But serving missionaries well requires us to recognize that this format can be a barrier for some.
At BibleMesh, we work with organizations to create customized education journeys for students. Technology enables training tailored to an individual’s needs. Our competency-based model focuses on candidates showing they have the necessary skills and knowledge for the missionary task.
Our approach is to deliver theological education with:
- Cohort-based experiences.
- Flexible course structures.
- Technology for learning pathways.
- Practical ministry outcomes.
Three Key Ideas Driving BibleMesh
Love God and neighbor: We want the commitment to love the Lord and love our neighbors to frame all our teaching and learning.
Make disciples of all nations: Form students to join God in his mission throughout all the world and equips the Church to make faithful disciples of Christ.
Faith once delivered to the saints: We want to learn from those who have gone before and treasure the wisdom of the Church through the centuries.
How could theological education enable cross-cultural mission?
We need to understand the theological message of the Bible and the story God is speaking to us across the canon.
Start with Scripture and its own internal theological emphases and organization. This allows the Bible to show us how to think theologically on its own terms.
We need to know how to apply their biblical literacy and theological formation in a specific cultural context.
We aim to train students to read God’s word and know it for themselves. But also to send them out with the skills to share that with others.
Teaches students how to read and interpret the Bible, forms them in pillars of historic Christian doctrines, and equips them to teach and disciple others in the faith.
