The MDiv programme has equipped me with working knowledge of the biblical languages, backed with the application of sound hermeneutics. This training, coupled with practice sermons throughout the course of study, is very helpful in my ministry as it enables me to perform more in-depth and accurate exegesis, as well as expository preaching of God’s Word. The coverage on Asian religions and philosophy have also broadened my paradigm to consider various worldviews so that I learn to be more sensitive and dynamic in my interaction with people.”

“The training in Asian Pastoral Institute (API) has equipped me with skills and knowledge to administer soul care. By applying psychological theories, I become aware of any developmental issues. God then helped me relive those moments that I was held bondage to, and healed me emotionally and psychologically.”

“It was a fruitful and satisfying journey with MAPS to explore various aspects of spiritual discipline and development. There are plenty of opportunities for me to gain much insight, broaden my horizon of understanding and reframe my mindset and shift my perspective when working alongside other course participants in various projects, presentations, and discussions. Another important highlight is the course instructors, who are experienced, patient, and willing to go the extra mile to engage us. I strongly recommend the MAPS!”

“Through the MAPS degree programme, I learnt key foundational skills and knowledge for providing pastoral care and guidance to both Christians and non-Christians. I gained a basic grounding in counselling and developmental stages, which helped me to minister to people who were in need. With a deeper understanding of the Christian worldview through theological and biblical studies, I am better equipped to interact and minister to others in intercultural settings as is common today.”

“The MAPS is a spiritually enriching course that allows me to understand biblical theology and history of Christianity. The course also facilitates much interaction among the classmates through group projects and I managed to get to know new friends from other church branches. With a focus on practical application, I enjoyed the times of doing street evangelism, house visitation, counselling, children, and youth teaching and even performed choir singing on the stage with my classmates. The course had taught me to be bold to step out of my comfort zone by partnering with God and not on my own strength to do His work.”
