- Adventist Theological Seminary (FAT)
The Theological Seminary is an institution of higher education whose mission is to provide each student with a Biblical, Theological and Pastoral education in a supportive and spiritual atmosphere. Its purpose is to prepare or improve the qualifications of the students for the service to which God has called them in order to accomplish the Church’s mission. The pastoral ministry is essentially a vocation, but it is also a profession that requires serious, in depth preparation in order to face the challenges of a complex ministry attuned to the needs of others. The faculty is here to help you become the best pastors and to assist you in acquiring the necessary tools, while offering intellectual and spiritual training adapted to evangelical needs.
Academic agreements have been signed with several universities including Andrews University (USA), University of Laval (Canada) and University of Strasbourg (France) which enables students to obtain a State recognized degree.
