  6. william wesson says:

    I think the MBS is exactly what I am looking for. I love to find new and exciting things in the scriptures. The apostle Paul is my favorite writer of the bible because he knew the scriptures of old so well. He used them as a Roman soldier used his battle gear. I to want to be as Paul was; ready and sted fast in God’s Word.

  7. oh Brother you are welcome. I will be very glad to see you becoming a student of Trinity. I am also a Ghanaian Student of Trinity. I am doing my Master of Divinity and I m really enjoying my studies. You can call me for more information about TGSAT. 0244 420588

  8. Pastor Harliquin Iyalla says:

    I already have diploma in xtian missions. what is the next course of study for me?

  9. Thomas Lander says:

    This is a great program. I’m a missionary in Cameroon and will be please to join for MBS.
    Please send me more details.

  10. Liberty Mukuhwa says:

    i am grateful that i have enrolled to do the MBS. i trust that it will help me discover the truth of the Word in my life. however, is the college affiliated to any denomination? if so which one? from which country are you operating from? i am in zimbabwe, can i please have the contact details of the committee members that are from my country. thank you

  11. Dennis L. Pueblas says:

    The first time I read my first module, I got very excited because of the fact that it didn’t only answer my questions, it also strengthened my faith specially my faith to the Lord Christ.

  12. oha michael ndubuisi says:

    am happy ,being admitted into the prestigious institute.i wish to see my name in the list of the already admitted students.Above all am so delighted on this offer .thanks and God bless you.Michael from Nigeria.

  13. Scott Hancock MBS Candidate says:

    This is an excellent program, but do not underestimate the amount of effort required to be successful; it is substantial, but well worth it. Distance learning is different in that it takes some time to receive grades, but keep on working and sending assignments even if you have not heard from the school for a while. The content of these lessons will bless you beyond what you ever thought possible. If you can get over the distance learning “time lag”, you will thoroughly enjoy your education with TGSAT. You will quickly find that your focus on each new assignment will begin to change from “getting the grade” to “getting blessed” by the quality curriculum of the module. I recommend this opportunity to anyone who is in need of more “meat” in their Christian diet. Upon Completion of my MBS I fully intend (God willing) on continuing my studies at Trinity in a Doctorate program. This school is shining light into the darkness – and I praise them for their effort!


    thanks for the opportunity. please i aM A student offering MBS and what i knew was that we are supposed to submit our work at the end of the whole course module.pls how come some other candidates are talking about sending assignments and waiting for it before moving to others.

  15. Hello Brother Twumasi, The new policy of TGSAT is that students are to submit their entire assignment at the end of their course. There is no policy anywhere that says that students should submit their and and wait for their grade before proceeding to the next module. If you practice that you would not be able to complete your course within the two year frame given. please contact your mentor for more information or you can send me an email to tell you more.

  17. Lazaro - Arusha, Tanzania says:

    Is it necessary the application for enrolment into a desired study programme being submitted in hard copies….I mean if someone submits an electronic message/ statement of ineterest and would like to join and start one of the programmes provided by Trinity School then are there any difficulties for one to be considered?


    if there is one thing that hurts me so much it is when one says the Lord has spoken and then say what the scripture does not say. i am therefore impressed with the MBS course module. it is woth going after. studying the word of God gives me the highest pleasure especially when i am able to discover new truths for myself in the scripture. i have learned to say “i will work much more harder.”


    I am a pastor who is completing his Theological course in Bugema University in Uganda.Surely, this course [MBS] is very vital for one to understand the bible fully and if possible one to continue even to the doctorate level. I heavily recommend this institution of higher learning and even i pray for our Almighty God to bless and sustain its pionners.

  20. solomon says:

    I would like to do MBS kindly help me. I am a trained teacher by profession.I preach in the churches.Thank you for your noble services.

  81. I am so glad today to be able to engage in higher theological discussions because of the foundation I got from my MBS studies at TGSAT. The MBS was my first degree to study at TGSAT and since then, I have been pursuing several programs here not just to earn papers but to be well equipped for an all-round ministry. Thank you, DR. Johnson C. Philip, for this vision and mentoring me throughout my studies. I could not have afforded such higher quality education if TGSAT wasn’t a tuition-free institution. Many thanks also to the Dean, Dr. Saneesh Cherian for all the work he puts in our academic work. God bless you!

  82. Paul Francis says:

    Hello, I would like to apply for one of your degree courses. Can you please assist with information on the process? Regards, Paul

  83. My name is Dr. Yekunoamlak Alemu, Assistant Professor at Addis Ababa University (AAU), Ethiopia. Moreover, I served us church elder and development committee member in one of the evangelical churches in Ethiopia. Regarding my educational background, I have earned PhD in Human Resource and Organizational Development from the University of Klagenfurt, Austria. I also hold BA and MA at AAU, in Educational Administration.

    The fully online MA program in Biblical Studies at Trinity Graduate School of Apologetics and Theology will equip individuals serving in the church or parachurch organizations with the necessary skills and mind-set by breaking physical barriers. Hence, I want to pursue the MBS program for my research and teaching assignment both in secular higher institutes and theological seminaries.

    Be that as it may, as a faculty in one of the developing countries, I can only apply to the MBS online program provided I get application fee waiver and full scholarship for program/course payments.
