  • Does LIFE EXPERIENCE count toward credits?
    All degrees at Footsteps Of Jesus Seminary are earned degrees. This is achieved by mandatory coursework that must be completed.
    Seminary transcripts do not always reflect real life experience. EMMI recognizes life experience which may have been gained through
    years of work which is ministry related. Many people have served in ministry positions and have gained a lot of knowledge and
    experience in their fields, but do not have any formal certificate, diploma, or degree. Life experience credits can give some of the
    recognition needed for this service in the work of the Lord. This acceptance of life credits helps a potential student to accelerate their
    learning college experience and enable them to earn a fully accredited ministry related degree. Applicants must have had more than
    five years in a recognized position in ministry.

    No diplomas or degrees can be awarded based purely upon life-experience. Life experience credit cannot be given for an entire degree
    but is limited to a maximum of 30 credit hours. Life experience which could include such things as books authored, missions trips classes
    taught, outreach ministries, ministries within a church, etc., must be documented along with the years they occurred and submitted for
    evaluation.

  • How we graduate?
    Students can start studying at any time during the year. They can also graduate as soon as they have completed their study program.
    EMMI FoJS/BA will hold regional graduations ceremonies each year throughout Canada,  as well as in various other nations world-wide.
    Attendance is not compulsory .Certificates, Diplomas and Degrees will be forwarded to students on completion of their studies.

  • Where do we start?
    The Certificate in Ministry is an ideal starting point for students who desire to know God’s Word and need a basic Biblical foundation
    for Spirit-filled Ministry. There are no minimum qualification prerequisites for the Certificate of Ministry. However, all students must be
    at least 16 years of age before they can enroll.


    A Diploma in Ministry provides the best ministry preparation and at the end of this program, students will be able to integrate Christian
    principles in critical thinking and decision making. The program prepares the student for further study into the various tracks of our
    Bachelor Degrees. The entrance requirements for the Diploma in Ministry is a Certificate in Ministry or 30 credit hours.
