The Ministerial Education

The ministerial Education Division consists of the IFCA Bible College which is administered by its Education Director, Dr. Alan James Schrader. Presently the College is working with Global University, Master's International University of Divinity, Bridges For Peace Institute, Elim Bible Institute, Valley Forge Christian College and West Coast Bible College & Seminary to help provide our ministers with Biblical education. 

The IFCA's Executive Board has set an educational standard for its credential applicants that requires the completion of a minimal number of ministry-related study courses for the issuance of its ministerial credentials.
