Are you an accredited college, university, school, etc?
Jerry Savelle Bible School (JSBS) is unaccredited on purpose because we are not an academic program. However, when our students have submitted their work to colleges and universities, whether Christian or secular, they have always received credits for their work. Our students enroll in order to answer a call from God and prepare for ministry. Or they desire in-depth teaching in biblical principles to develop their own personal relationship with the Lord. Transformation of a student’s life will take place because the mind is renewed by the Word of God and JSBS is the ideal environment for that purpose. Be obedient and enroll if you know God is calling you to JSBS, to fulfill God’s purpose and destiny for your life.
Since JSBS is an unaccredited Bible School, what will I receive once I finish?
Upon the successful completion of all ten Level One: Building a Foundation courses you will receive a Certificate of Completion. You will be eligible to enroll in Level Two: School of Ministry upon completion of Level One.
Upon the successful completion of all 6 Modules from Level Two: School of Ministry you will receive a Diploma. You may apply for licensing and eventually ordination from Dr. Savelle through Heritage of Faith Ministerial Association after completing the Portfolio assignment which is given on the school site.
Both Level One and Level Two graduates will be invited to attend our Graduation ceremony held in Crowley, Texas each year during the Heritage of Faith Ministers Assocation (HFMA) conference where Dr. Savelle will minister to and present the Certificates and Diplomas to the graduates. Graduates will be allowed to attend the two day conference.
What lessons should I take first?
Dr. Savelle believes that starting with a solid foundation in the Word of God is important. Dr. Savelle has preselected Developing a Passion for God and New Creation Realities as the first two required courses in that order. He has suggested the order for the rest of the courses should be completed as listed. However, after the completion of the first two required courses you are free to select any of the remaining courses.
The School of Ministry lessons go in the order of the Modules which contain four lessons in each Module beginning with Module 1 which contains Lessons 1-4 and ending with Module 6 which contains Lessons 21-24.
How long do I have to complete a course?
Level One: Building a Foundation consists of ten unique courses. Each student is given 60 days to complete a course and its assignments.
Level Two: School of Ministry consists of 6 Modules with a total of 24 lessons. Each student is given 60 days to complete each Module and its assignments.
You will have the freedom to study the lessons at your own pace and time, day or night. If you need more time just contact the office and we will extend your due dates so you can continue your studies.
