Weekly Schedule

FIRE School of Ministry operates on a semester schedule, with two semesters per year (August – December; January – May). Core classes meet in the mornings, Tuesdays through Fridays, 8:00a.m. to 12:20p.m., and electives meet in the afternoons. Classes also meet each Tuesday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and FSM’s weekly Chapel service is Thursday evening at 7pm. In addition to the class sessions, students are also required to participate in outside ministry. Specific times will vary for each ministry.

Faculty and Staff

All of our faculty members have years of ministry experience, and several of them are active in biblical scholarship and academic research and writing. To find out more about our faculty and staff, please visit the Faculty and Staff page.

Transfer of Credit /Accreditation

FIRE School of Ministry has partnered with three accredited universities, all of whom will accept FSM’s credits. This will help enable students to pursue further education after studying at FSM. Please see the Transfer of Credit page for more details.

Due to the call God has given FIRE School of Ministry to make mentoring and hands-on ministry training and experience such an integral part of our program, FIRE School of Ministry is not accredited at this time. Nevertheless, FIRE School of Ministry does place a high value on academic excellence and seeks to instill a sound biblical worldview and an advanced level of biblical understanding into all of our students.
