GSBM Online School for Ministry Leaders is an institute of learning offering classes of instruction that are designed to enhance or boost the overall and often specific capability of a person to perform a biblically specified office i.e. pastor, missionary, evangelist, or other church leader; however, GSBM Online School for Ministry Leaders does not screen applicants concerning biblical requirements for the office.
Because applicants are not being screened, GSBM Online School for Ministry Leaders does not endorse or certify that a person completing any track of study meets the Biblical requirements for any church office. A Certificate of Training specifies only that the bearer has satisfactorily completed all of requirements for a specific track of study.
