School of Ministry
School of Ministry
The South Carolina Conference School of Ministry was established to provide a program of education and continuing education for ministers and laymen. Ministerial credentials, CEU’s, and an Associate of Arts Degree in Practical Theology can be earned through this program. The program is not limited to men or women desiring credentials with the Pentecostal Holiness Church. Laymen are highly encouraged to attend and receive training to be better equipped in local church leadership.
Realizing that we are living in the last days, that the end-time harvest is upon us and that laborers must be raised up to reach the harvest, we see our purpose as two-fold: First, to train men and women in the local church to discover and develop their spiritual gifts so they can be used in the ministry of the local church. Second, to train men and women to be raised up to enter into the harvest as licensed and ordained ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. The South Carolina Conference School of Ministry does not discriminate based on race, color, sex, age, national origin or religious preference.
