Welcome to the section on Application Process. In this section we cover the following points:
A Challenge to Ministers of the Gospel who Lack Adequate Training
The phenomenal spread of Christianity throughout sub-Sahara Africa can be attributed to ordinary people taking the message of salvation to friends, families, and neighbors, and then on to the next village, town, city, district and nation. Many African Christians are serious about obeying the Great Commission and preaching the Good News to all people. As a result, churches have been planted nearly everywhere. Many of these churches however are led by untrained or inadequately trained pastors who know very little about the Bible, theology or ministry. This has brought much confusion and false doctrine into the church. Such leaders may have good intentions, but it takes more than good intensions to get the job done right. If you're a church leader like that, please seriously consider the following question:
Do YOU desire to be a truly effective soldier in God's army �a well-equipped Centurion of Christ?
This is the beginning point of the application process - you must decide the answer to that question. If you're not sure in your heart that the answer is YES, then do not apply at this time. But if you have a deep conviction that you need to undergo training in order to become a well-equipped Centurion of Christ, then continue on.
If God has really called you into the ministry, then we believe you want to be the best for him that you possibly can be, and we at Alpha-Omega Seminary may be able to help you achieve that. The Alpha-Omega program is NOT easy, and it's NOT for everyone. If you're looking for easy, AOS is NOT the place for you. But if you're looking for training that can turn you into an extraordinary Centurion of Christ, then we can assist you in achieving that goal.
