Frequently Asked Questions
How will the COVID-19 pandemic affect the 2021 launch of ENS?
Our team has been closely following developments related to COVID-19 and its effects on educational institutions and international travel. After assessing a wide variety of factors, we have decided to keep our 2021 launch date. However, we are closely monitoring the limitations and possibilities of international travel and how that may affect our first residential intensive in Manila in June of 2021. We are currently considering several contingencies plans in the event that international travel is not possible for members of our cohort in 2021. By the middle of the first quarter of 2021, we will make a final decision and will notify all of our applicants.
Who should apply?
Though we are open to non-Every Nation applicants, Every Nation Seminary is being built for Every Nation vocational ministers (church planters, pastors, campus missionaries, and cross-cultural missionaries). We will prioritize admissions for those who have at least five years of vocational ministry experience.
Who will be on the faculty?
At Every Nation Seminary, you will have the opportunity to learn from professors who are not only well-educated in their academic fields but well-practiced and experienced in local church and campus ministry. Our faculty will be a global team of veteran Every Nation pastors and missionaries who hold doctoral degrees in biblical studies, theology, and missiology. They have received graduate degrees from a diverse set of institutions, including: Aberdeen, Asbury, Asian Theological Seminary, Asian Graduate School of Theology, Fuller Seminary, Gordon-Conwell, Manchester, Multnomah, Oxford, Reformed Theological Seminary, Regent College, Regent University, and Western Seminary among others.
How much will the program cost?
Annual tuition will be 3000 USD/year (or 1000 USD/term, with three terms per year).
Will there be scholarships available?
We are working on a scholarship fund to help students who need financial assistance. Our goal is that no qualified student will have a financial barrier to attending ENS.
I never finished my bachelor’s degree, but I have met all the other requirements for admission. Is it possible to still be accepted into an ENS cohort?
The accreditation body grants a small percentage of exceptions for each cohort. For potential students who are applying to join an MA cohort without a BA, you are encouraged to apply (especially if you have extensive ministry experience), but it is important to know that students who don’t have a bachelor’s degree are competing for a smaller slice of the spots because there is an absolute limit on how many exceptions we can grant with each cohort.
Where will ENS be located?
Every Nation Seminary will be a global seminary headquartered in Manila, Philippines. However, our faculty and students will come from all over the world. With the exception of our annual two-week intensives in Manila, our students will remain in their ministry contexts as they take classes, interact with faculty and other students, and submit assignments through our online learning platform.
Will ENS accept transfer credit?
We will assess potential transfer credits on a case by case basis after we have received an applicant’s academic transcripts.
