The Pastoral Training program is a 3 year program designed to help students gain a deeper biblical understanding as well as to learn about church leadership, how to create sermons and the responsibilities of the pastor and ministry leader within the church. ETS offers a program that emphasizes both theory as well as putting the gained knowledge into practice

Our students have an opportunity to not only learn the theoretical side of things, but to put these learned theories into practice.  A few examples this is found through opportunities such as communion, baptism, foot washing, preaching & preparing sermons, weddings, funerals and more.  Students leave ETS with a deeper understanding of how these different sacraments operate within the everyday life.
