The Ministerial Study Program (MSP) has been developed primarily for people who are aware of the call of God to full-time ministry, but who are unable to obtain their training through traditional educational institutions.  It is also used by many who, through the guidance and approval of their District, desire a self-study and coaching approach to their ministry preparation.

Who is it for?

The typical candidate for the MSP has the following profile:
-  A person who has experienced a call to full-time ministry and is able to articulate that call
-  A person who is willing to make a career change to follow God's leading
-  Is an experienced leader in a local Alliance church
-  Gives evidence of having godly character and potential for the vocational ministry
-  Is an active member of an Alliance church

How much does it cost?

The cost to participate in the Ministerial Study Program is approximately $2,000.  This includes a $100 student registration fee, $85/$95 tuition (per course, depending on course format), plus books and materials.

How do I enroll?

When the candidate has completed the application form and has received approval from his/her congregation, the candidate sends these forms with the student registration fee ($100) to The Alliance Southeast office.  The District Superintendent must sign the application form to give his approval and name a coach to oversee the student’s progress.  The district office then sends these completed forms to the Church Leadership Academy for processing.
