A Note To Local Judicatories

(Churches, Dioceses, Conferences, Synods, Presbyteries, etc.)

  The Providence Theological School welcomes your input and will be glad to work with your organization in tailoring courses to meet your specific needs and requirements. We can be the principal resource for your local ministry training or assist in any part that you desire. We can tailor course assignments and texts as your prefer and will even hire individuals in your organization that you select to evaluate your particular student￿s work.

You can have a complete school for local ministry without any of the costs or recordkeeping associated with such an endeavor. We can even tailor a special page on our website specifically to your organization and the courses you require or prefer. Contact the Dean of the Providence Theological School to discuss these possibilities.
