Education for ministry and beyond


  "A Movement to Reach All Nations"

The Ministerial Education

The ministerial Education Division is administered by its Education Director, Dr. Alan James Schrader. Presently the IFCA Education Department is working with IFCA Bible College & Theological Seminary and IFCA Discipleship Institute to fulfill training needed for credential holders. Transfer Credits from other  Biblical Institutes are also considered  and evaluated.

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.
