Is FIRE accredited?

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. All of our faculty members have years of ministry experience, and several of them are active in biblical scholarship and academic research and writing.

Furthermore, FIRE School of Ministry has partnered with three accredited universities, Ecclesia College, The King’s University,  and Southern Evangelical Seminary, all of whom will accept FSM credits. FSM is also working to obtain additional agreements. This will help enable students to pursue further education after studying at FSM. Please see the Transfer of Credit page for more specific details.

What are the housing arrangements?

FIRE assists accepted single students in finding roommates. Upon request, accepted students may receive a Roommate Request form. Students will then be sent a list with contact information for incoming and current students who are also in need of housing. Students may then contact those on that list to work out housing arrangements.

Can I work while I am in school?

FIRE School’s core class schedule is Tuesday through Friday, in the mornings, as well as Tuesday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This allows students to be free to work on Mondays, weekends, and some weekday afternoons/evenings.
