The international ministry of TVSEMINARY has spiritual influence in more than 150 countries. Our ability to equip leaders and laypeople alike both theologically and with practical Christian application fuels their kingdom success in ministry centers, churches, home Bible studies, church planting efforts, children's homes, and discipleship training hubs across the globe. Our investment in all people to provide the skills to live and lead well is our most strategic investment for our courses' long-term impact.
Ephesians 3:17-20 ...that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us
We want every Christian ministry leader, pastor, and believer in Jesus Christ to have a solid foundation for leading their flock regardless of their economic situation or location in the world. Christians everywhere have the opportunity to learn from TVSEMINARY Bible courses. We hope and trust that the systematic teaching of the Gospel's truth will enable each viewer to fulfill the calling of Christ in their lives and impact their home and community for the Lord. We pray that they will be inspired by the Holy Spirit and will draw near to Him through their studies.
Courses from renowned professors in the United States and beyond are carefully selected and filmed in live classrooms, in our studio in Russia, or at selected locations worldwide.
Full courses recorded in English are translated into Russian, Portuguese, Mandarin, Farsi, and Uzbek languages multiplying the financial investment made to create these courses many times over. A single course recorded at the Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) in Chicago, IL, will reach thousands of students over several years once it is translated into additional languages. The impact for the Kingdom of God in various cultures is virtually limitless!
Courses are selected for translation based on culture, available translators, and the countries' spiritual need where they will be viewed both by TVSEMINARY enrolled students and thousands of "seekers" on YouTube.
While asking for tuition donations from its thousands of students, TVSEMINARY courses are offered without charge, as most of our students have virtually no means to contribute to the ministry. Many are working secular jobs during the week and preaching/pastoring their churches on a volunteer basis in their “spare” time. They are sincerely grateful to be able to access the same quality of seminary courses available in America.
TVSEMINARY currently offers a bachelor’s degree using courses in the Russian language, and a full master’s degree program will be available in 2021.
