Sovereign Grace Academy is a biblical studies ministry provided by Sovereign Grace Family Church. Students of the ministry will be provided seminary quality instruction with no financial obligation. Courses are provided in a wide range of subjects.
A Seminary Experience for Every Believer
SGA is a two year program, made up of four eight-week terms per year which will revolve and repeat. Students can begin anytime and at the end of 2 years will have completed the entire program. Students who complete each term will be awarded a certificate of completion in that subject. When students complete all eight terms, they will be awarded a final Certificate of Completion in “Basic Training for Christian Ministry” which indicates they have graduated the entire program.
The eight “CORE SUBJECTS” would be:
SURVEY OF THE OLD TESTAMENT; SURVEY OF THE NEW TESTAMENT; SURVEY OF BIBLE DOCTRINES; SURVEY OF CHURCH HISTORY
INTRODUCTION TO HERMENEUTICS; INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN ETHICS; INTRODUCTION TO APOLOGETICS; INTRODUCTION TO CHURCH LIFE & MINISTRY
Each course will include:
- Required class time (Courses will last 8 weeks with one class session per week. Students who miss more than 2 classes will be dropped from the class unless prior arrangements are made)
- Required reading (At least one extra-biblical work will be assigned per course, many of which will be available in the SGFC library)
- Required writing (At the end of each course, 4 weeks will be allowed for the completion and return of the final paper)
Once a course is satisfactorily completed, a student will be awarded a Course Completion Certificate signed by the instructor.
The courses provided by Sovereign Grace Academy also meet the requirements for credit at Jacksonville Baptist Theological Seminary. Students may choose to apply the Course Completion Certificate toward a degree from the seminary by paying the tuition required by JBTS. Each certificate will be worth three credit hours.
