An Edifying Bible-Centered Curriculum

ETS is committed to training leaders by entrusting the teachings of the Scripture to faithful men and women who will be able to teach others also (2 Tim 2:2).

The ministry programs at ETS seek to prepare men for a ministry of Bible exposition as pastors, teachers and leaders. Our post-graduate programs prepare Christians for a life of ministry with the ability to expound and interpret the Scriptures in a memorable and edifying way, in order to share God’s Word with Christians and unbelievers alike.
