certified bible diploma program


Petros Network has partnered with Africa’s Hope and Addis Ababa Bible College to translate and provide Bible curriculum to East Africa in the heart language of the people. The curriculum is 24 courses or 72 credits delivered over 2 to 3 years.

Upon completion of the coursework students will receive a Certified Bible Diploma that allows them to matriculate into a BA. For many indigenous church planters receiving an education to expand their ministry is a dream come true as education is so valued in Africa.


Africa’s Hope Curriculum



Petros Network has partnered with Africa’s Hope to translate Discipleship Materials into the heart language of the people. Our goal is to help translate each course into Oromia, Amharic, Somali, and Arabic.


7 Areas of Focus

Listed below are seven areas and teaching outcomes we believe are fundamental to our call, and essential to the longterm growth and health of the churches we plant:

BIBLE BASICS

Our preferred outcome is to train spiritual leaders who are equipped to correctly handle the Word of Truth and are ruthlessly committed to the authority of Scripture.

DISCIPLE MAKING

Our preferred outcome is to clarify the pastoral calling of spiritual leaders to go into all the world and make disciples, not just win converts, and to inspire them with a compelling vision that both shepherd and sheep are at their best when making disciples who make disciples.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Our preferred outcome is to equip spiritual leaders with an understanding that the health of their church and its impact upon the village in which it is planted hinges on the shepherd’s effectiveness as a skillful and wise leader.

DOCTRINE & THEOLOGY

Our preferred outcome is to call spiritual leaders to vigilant alertness to theological drift and doctrinal error by equipping them with sound doctrine.

SCRIPTURAL ENRICHMENT

Our preferred outcome is to inspire spiritual leaders through anointed Bible preaching by our teaching team.

ORGANIZATIONAL BENCHMARKS

Our preferred outcome is to equip spiritual leaders with a skill set for organizational management and strategic planning, and to introduce them to accountability for kingdom productiveness.

VISION

Our preferred outcome is to paint the picture of our Divine mission for spiritual leaders, demonstrating how a clear and compelling vision will determine the path, set the pace, marshal the resources, produce the energy and create the accountability necessary to accomplish what God has set before us.
