Harvest Bible University is actually three schools in one:
A Bible school, a seminary, and a graduate school of mission.
Each of the schools offers degrees appropriate to the purpose
of the school and its student body.
Due to the decentralized nature of the university, many of the
same courses are used in the different degree programs. But the
number of units required and the balance of courses is different
in each case. See the Degree Descriptions section of the catalog
|Harvest School of the Bible
The school of the Bible includes all undergraduate programs—certificate,
associate, diploma, and
is the division that continues the primary purpose for which
Harvest was founded many years ago: To help fulfill the Great
Commission through the development of individuals who will
plant, renew, and multiply churches in the urban centers of
the world, including training and developing lay leadership
for churches, and providing Bible education for all Christians
which is balanced, life-related, and grounded in Biblical principles
and church history.
|Harvest School of Theology
The school of theology provides graduate level seminary education
for those who are preparing for the professional ministry and
for others who want to excel in their quest for knowledge and
effectiveness in the Kingdom of God. The degrees include Master
of Ministry as a basic graduate degree, Master of Divinity,
a first-professional degree, and Doctor of Ministry as the
highest level professional degree.
|Harvest School of World Mission
Since the purpose of Harvest is to facilitate the fulfillment
of the Great Commission, the school of world mission is designed
to prepare people specifically to penetrate new areas with
the gospel, usually through starting new works, but also
through support to existing missions. The latest “cutting-edge” concepts
are taught, and the student is introduced to the work of today’s
leaders. The school offers Master of Missions and Doctor of
Jesus said, “This gospel of the kingdom
shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the
nations, and then the end shall come” (Matt. 24:14).
