Theological training for everybody
One of the proven ways to become grounded in EFCA’s core doctrinal truths
A challenging and deeply rewarding course of facilitated study
GATEWAY is open to men and women of all ethnicities and backgrounds. It will deepen your theological understanding and prepare you for leadership in EFCA churches.
In GATEWAY Phase I: You will be part of a class that meets regularly with your facilitator. Between class meetings, you will read, study and write papers on your own. At class, you will give feedback and encouragement to your classmates and receive it from them; this will help strengthen the accuracy and clarity of your written documents on each of the articles of the EFCA’s Statement of Faith and other key issues. This class is available in English and Spanish.
GATEWAY began in 2006 training people in Spanish and English. Since then, it’s become a widely adapted pathway for church-based theological training; more than 1,500 students have participated, and some students continue on to earn ministry credentials.
