Registration for our Spring semester is now open! The semester begins on Monday, January 22nd. This Spring we will be concentrating all of our efforts on one class, Biblical Theology. This class will explore key concepts within Scripture, not just on an intellectual level, but how those concepts relate to practical ministry.  If you would like to register for the class, you can fill out the registration form linked at the bottom of this page.



Abba’s House Bible Training Center exists to educate students in the relational message of the Bible so that they can go out and impact the world for Jesus Christ. Our classes are designed to both educate student’s in the Scriptures and to guide them in using Biblical truths to see lives around them transformed. 

What we teach:

  • College-level classes covering the basics of Christian theology, Biblical content, and practical ministry.
  • Every class we teach is centered around the relational model of ministry. Centered around Genesis 2:18, the relational model says that man, before he was a sinner, was alone. Our students are taught Bible and Theology through this lens so that they are equipped to care for the lost and wounded.


  • Certificate in Relational Ministry - This is a two-year program consisting of 8 classes and one practicum. (27 total credit hours)
  • Students not wishing to pursue the Certificate program can still audit classes for no credit. Assignments will not be required, however, the student would have to re-take the class if they decided to pursue a certificate program.


  • 1- 2 classes are offered each semester. When we offer two, they are on the same night of the week, back-to-back, so that students only have to give up one night a week to be in class.
  • We are currently offering the following classes on a rotating basis:
    • Relational Ministry
    • Bible Study Methods (Hermeneutics)
    • New Testament Survey
    • Old Testament Survey 1
    • Old Testament Survey 2
    • Apologetics
    • Biblical Theology (2 credits)


  • The cost to enroll in the certificate program is $50/semester plus the cost of books. This fee covers both classes.
  • The cost to audit a class for no credit is $20/course plus the cost of books. Audit students are required to sign a statement of commitment to be present for classes.


We choose instructors for classes based on the following criteria:

  • A degree at least one level higher than what they are teaching.
  • Experience teaching in a relevant area.
  • Ministry or Pastoral experience.
