Wicket Gate Bible College
Wicket Gate Bible College’s purpose is to provide a follow-on education path for those who complete one our certificate programs or for others who have at least an associate degree. This is an unaccredited program that is intended to be the equivalent of the last two years of a traditional BS in Biblical Studies. At the completion of this course of study we provide a certificate of completion (diploma).
The name for the Bible College was taken from Bunyan’s book “The Pilgrim’s Progress”. The vision of the ministry is driven by three mental pictures taken from the following Scriptures,
1. Need for Workers
Mat 9:37-38 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
2. Training of Workers
2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
3. Mat 28:19-20
Mat 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen
The only prerequisite for this program is that you have finished one of our “Four Soils Ministry” certificate program or have at least an associate degree from a recognized college, university or seminary.
Inquiry Based Learning
Wicket Gate Bible College has moved to a “Inquiry Based Learning” technique for all of our courses. Inquiry Based Learning is about ensuring that, as far as is possible, students acquire their knowledge by means of a process of active learning. The learning is self-directed because it is driven by students’ own decisions about appropriate ways in which an gain understanding about the topic/assignment. The students carry out research and investigations into areas that they decide are essential for a proper response to the assignment.
All of Wicket Gate Bible College courses are essay courses that require independent study and a term paper/essay.
