The Bridge Program

The Bridge Program is a dual degree program, where you can receive a Bachelor of Kingdom Theology (BKT) and a Master of Kingdom Theology (MKT) degree simultaneously. The Bridge Program combines these two degrees and reduces the overall courses needed for completion of the undergraduate degree.

  • The bachelor’s is designed to provide the learner a basic theological education that focuses upon undergraduate level of studies that encompasses a sound holistic theological education, with a special emphasis in Kingdom Theology.
  • The master’s provides a deeper and more investigative approach to the Kingdom of God on a graduate-level which includes research and writing. 

the dual degree - Your key to kingdom theology!

The Bridge Program is designed to prepare you for a Kingdom scholarship that allows you to teach and preach with a thorough knowledge of the original message of Jesus, the Kingdom of God. You will earn both your bachelors degree and your master’s degree in Kingdom theology which provides the most concentrated program of Kingdom studies in existence. This program will assist you in teaching, writing, and declaring the message of Jesus in our present context.

Courses

The Bridge Program contains the equivalent of 180 credit hours, which is comprised of 90 credit hours from the undergraduate program (Kingdom Bible University) and 90 credit hours from the Kingdom Theological Seminary.

The Kingdom Bible University Bachelor of Kingdom Theology contains the equivalent of 120 credit hours and is traditionally completed in 4 years. Through the Bridge Program, you will be exempt from 30 of those credit hours, which will save you tremendously in tuition and in the time it takes to complete your degree. Instead of spending 4 years just to complete your bachelor’s, you can spend 4-5 years and obtain both a bachelor’s and master’s in Kingdom Theology.
