Chafer Seminary Training for YOU – Tuition Free!
Have you ever thought about taking a seminary-level course to expand your biblical study skills or knowledge of Scripture and theology? Or, do you desire to learn more about biblical or church history? How about learning some Greek or Hebrew?
Maybe your focus is not on being a pastor, but you teach Sunday School or are in church leadership. Here’s a wonderful opportunity for you.
If you are a member of West Houston Bible Church then you can take up to two Chafer Theological Seminary (CTS) course offerings tuition free. CTS has a partnership program whereby members of churches that contribute beyond a certain amount to CTS each year can take courses tuition free (maximum of two courses per student per semester). You just need to cover the cost of the registration fee ($30) plus any textbooks required for the course.
Registration for the Spring semester is under way.
