Our Mission


From the inception of the vision for Faith Theological Seminary and Christian College, our President, Dr. George W. Walters, Jr., believed that the institution should have a four-fold purpose by providing the following:
  • A basic foundation for beginning Christians in the Word of God to gain confidence in their relationship with the Lord.
  • Training for service in the local church (whether for staff member or volunteer) as well as advanced training for older Christians to be able to provide support to the work of the ministry.
  • A program to prepare people for ministry as they sense God’s call on their life.
  • Advanced studies for the seasoned minister and the development of academic credentials for a life of ministry experience.

Our History


Faith Theological Seminary and Christian College developed in 1984 with Faith Outreach Center’s Assistant Pastor, Ed Kuhn, as the Institute of Ministry with its first graduation in 1985. Four individuals of that first class of thirteen still serve full-time on the mission field outside of the United States.
 
By 1987, the Institute became Faith Outreach Christian College as the administration and students desired more advanced educational opportunities and received its authorization status to grant degrees by the Florida State Board of Independent Colleges and
Universities (SBICU) in 1988.
 
We do not see education as an end, but a means
to an end; that end being obedience to the call of
God to influence the culture and society with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Philosophy


Faith Theological Seminary and Christian College has the philosophy that a quality, spiritual education that trains an individual for service to the Lord Jesus Christ should not leave that individual with an oppressive financial debt.
We, therefore, do not have or are seeking the very costly accreditation that leads to qualification for government guaranteed student loans or sponsored grants. Institutions using such monies generally charge the maximum tuition allowable, leaving the student with a sizable debt at the completion of their education.
For those called to the ministry, this debt can be hinder obedience to fulfill God’s calling with this type of debt lingering over the finances. Our approach is to provide the most affordable education that we can as a ministry to the Lord and to His servants.

Policy


Our policy is to provide an in-house, interest free, student loan for those who either simply desire a payment plan or are not able to pay each year’s costs prior to beginning their program. This is possible with our exceptionally low tuition and fees. The actual plan is described in the student loan section.
If a student withdraws from the program prior to attending class, the refund policy outlined by the Commission for Independent Education, S.1005.04, 6E-1.0032 (f), will be followed (not more than 5% of total cost for that program paid will be retained before refund is given and request is made prior to three months from closing date of program).
