Formations Bible College is a three-year program that offers three certificates: Foundations, Biblical Studies and Theological Studies. Additional courses offered enhance the core course material to include practical life and ministry skills.  

Below is a summary of the core curriculum and lesson series that make up the three certificates. Each course is made up of single to multiple classes.

Two of the three one-day seminars offered during a school year, must be elected.

 

Students may elect to do one, two or three certificates. However, as the certificates are sequential, all studies must start with the first year's Foundations Certificate. To receive a diploma in Christian Ministry from ThirdMill Institute and Formations Bible College, students must complete all three certificate programs.   

We currently accept applications for the 2024/25 school year for the first year's Certificate of Foundations as well as the second year's Certificate of Biblical Studies. 

To qualify for the second year program, you must have completed the first year's Certificate of Foundations from Formations Bible College or through ThirdMill Institute. However, if you have credits in Biblical Studies or Theology from another institute, you may qualify for the second year program; this is determined by the faculty. Please contact the office for information.
