Greetings in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ! 
Thank you for your interest in studying at Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary.  If you understand that the Holy Scriptures are the very Word of God and desire to increase your knowledge of the Apostolic Faith of Historical Christianity as defined in the Apostles’ Creed, if you are a college or high school graduate, or if you are just a student having the desire to learn, then we may be able to help you. 

The purpose of the Seminary is to give training not only for the “Pastoral Office”, but also for other church vocations.  If you have your bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, you may enter the Master of Divinity Degree (M.Div.) program, the Master of Christian Leadership (MACL) program, or the Master of Biblical Counseling (MABC). For those who would like to pursue a bachelor’s degree, we offer the Bachelor of Theology in Pastoral Ministry.  We also offer certificate programs in Biblical Studies and Biblical Counseling and continuing education classes for students who desire to further their theological training.   
You may study full time or part time with us.  Classes are scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  If you are a veteran, please note that the Seminary is an approved institution by the South Carolina State Department of Higher Education for US Veteran Administration training benefits. 
Again, thank you for your interest and please feel free to contact me should you have further questions.
