Programs

To meet the needs of Christian leaders/pastors in diverse contexts, life situations, and prior educational opportunities, Vineyard School of Ministry Africa (VSM Africa) offers two tracks described as Non-Credentialed and Credentialed.

The theological and philosophical foundation of both these tracks is a commitment to offer a theological education that is uniquely African in orientation, and Vineyard, in terms of values and philosophy of ministry.

The Gospel originated out of a particular culture and is communicated within a particular culture. The future of theological education in Africa must include an appropriation of cultural and religious traditions birthed on the soil of Africa.”

Non-Credentialed Track

Applicants to this track are not required to possess a Secondary School Certificate nor pass an English proficiency exam.

This track offers an entirely “in house” Certificate and Diploma that is only recognized within the broader Association of Vineyard Churches. The reading and written requirements of this track have been adjusted to the educational level of the student. Examinations and final grades are monitored and evaluated via internal criteria and are not recognized by any external educational institution or governmental agency.

Credentialed Track

Applicants to this track are required to possess a Secondary School Certificate (KCSE – D+, for Kenyans).

Vineyard School of Ministry Africa, in collaboration with Daystar University, offers a Credentialed Certificate and Diploma Program in Ministry. The Certificate Program requires fifteen (15) courses and the Diploma Program requires twenty (20) courses.

The student must provide documentation attesting to an overall grade of D+ to enter the Certificate Program, and to enter the Diploma Program the requirement is a C (Plain) in KCSE or its equivalent. If a student has achieved a C- and can document experience or additional coursework / certificates, they may also qualify for the Diploma Program.

The courses are offered three times yearly through intensives held usually in April, August, and December. The course work and examinations are conducted in English.

VSM Africa students in countries other than Kenya must meet comparable qualifications to apply to VSM Africa’s Credentialed track.
