Admissions

After several decades of apostolic ministry, in March of 2003, the Lord Jesus instructed ATS Chancellor George Kouri to build a leadership training engine to raise a new generation of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for the apostolic reformation of His Church and to advance His Kingdom purpose in the 21st Century. Because of this unique apostolic mandate, our degree programs and courses are offered for a very affordable tuition to anyone desiring to prepare for fivefold ministry or serve Messiah's Kingdom in the 21st century world.

Enrollment in a Degree Program

Students wishing to enroll in an ATS degree program must complete an enrollment application and pay the one-time $25.00* enrollment fee online (please note that the regular $50.00 registration fee has been reduced for a limited time). All degree applications will then be carefully evaluated by the Dean of Admissions in consultation with the Academic Dean, qualifying students will be admitted to the appropriate degree program and contacted by the Office of Admissions to discuss payment options, the availability of scholarships, course enrollment, and reception of ATS Course Keys allowing access to our Online Learning Center.

(To discuss payment plans, interest-free financing, and the availability of scholarships, please contact Dr. Marie Howard at the Office of Admissions at mhoward@atsvirtual.org. or (386) 597-4922

Life-Learning and Accomplishments Evaluation

Students enrolling in a degree program are encouraged to consider a Life-Learning/Accomplishments Evaluation as a way to receive credit for prior academic work and achievement, as well as, life and leadership experience, and ministry accomplishments.

The typical ATS student is seasoned and experienced both in life and ministry with years of not only academic, but also ministerial training and experience. Recognizing the value of life and ministry experience and accomplishments, we are prepared to award credit toward an ATS degree for relevant experience. However the process is thorough and carefully considers each applicant's educational, vocational, and ministry accomplishments.

There is no limit to the number of credits that may be awarded and there is no charge to the student for credit awarded. The Life-Learning/Accomplishments Evaluation has the potential of promoting the student into advanced-placement in a degree program and saving the student much time and effort. In some cases the faculty evaluation committee may even recommend placing a student into an advanced degree program based on the evaluation. The regular non-refundable $300 Life-Learning/Accomplishments Evaluation fee has been reduced to $150.00* for a limited time. This fee helps qualified students accelerate and elevate their ATS educational experience and can be paid using this form.

If you have questions about pursuing a life learning evaluation you may contact the Dean of Admissions at mhoward@atsvirtual.org. or (386) 597-4922

Partnering Churches, Networks, Patrons, and Benefactors

As mentioned above ATS is an apostolic educational and leadership training mission! In keeping with our God given mandate to train a new generation of fivefold ministers and Kingdom leaders to advance Christ’s Kingdom, help reform His Church and establish Kingdom Civilization in every city and nation throughout the earth all of our courses and degree programs are offered at affordable prices. However, many of our students are apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers who are actively involved in ministry and the work of the Kingdom in cities throughout Africa and India. To help those needing help scholarships and interest-free financing and easy payment plans are also available.

Our ability to to do this is totally dependent upon the goodness of the Lord and the generosity of our dedicated faculty, as well as, the support and partnership of mission-minded pastors and churches, patrons, and benefactors who have a God given passion to see Christ’s Kingdom extended, His Church reformed and Kingdom Civilization established throughout the earth. If you are a senior pastor of a local church, the head of a network of churches or an individual patron or benefactor and interested in partnering with ATS in fulfilling our global mission to raise up a new generation of ministers and Kingdom leaders for the 21st Century, please contact the President by e-mail at jbradshaw@storeht.com or call Dr. James A.
