The educational paradigm of Liberty College of Ministry differs considerably
from the traditional academic models of ministry. The new methodology of
training, following patterns of contemporary adult education, is not based
exclusively or even primarily on a classroom format, programmed to meet
predetermined academic standards. Rather it incorporates a variety of learning
events and experiences, which are offered as a basis for earning training
“College students should not necessarily be taught traditional dogmas, but
rather aspects of the education process should be that of deprogramming much of
what has previously been learned. How often it is merely intellectual,
scholastic, traditional and many of us have found by bad experience that God has
put us to school again to unlearn what man has crammed into our brains” - Dr. A.
B. Simpson founder of the Christian and Missionary Alliance.
Training credits accumulates as each student moves toward ministry diplomas on
various levels. Our focus on training is both on impartation and on information.
This is not to deny the importance of information, but rather it is to affirm
that relevant information will be provided in a context of imparting skills and
anointing for practical ministry. Furthermore, ministry in the Spirit receives
equal emphasis to ministry in the Word and truth.
