I have appreciated the quality and depth of the courses and have really benefited from my first three courses. The Contact Sessions provided interaction with other students as well as with the lecturer, which was of great benefit to me.
SGTS has had a big impact on me especially in the area of discipline to study. Self study was very difficult to embrace... I will now be entering the new academic year with a renewed mind which calls for discipline in the management of God's time. SGTS's approach to theological studies, if correctly adhered to, is very rich and life transforming as it is pratical.
The work (material) is of a very good quality. With that I mean that what we are studying is really practically good and beneficial to not only me, the student, but also to the people I minister and share some of the things I learn from studying with SGTS. SGTS not only improved my activities as preacher of the word but also broadened my understanding of the Word.
As one who has been a believer for 33 years, now involved in full-time Church planting for the past 8 years, the course is really excellent for my pastoral and life needs. Without exaggeration, this is just what I needed. I feel that my preaching is definitely improving as well as my understanding of theological issues. In my case, this course has clarified critical personal issues—for example, with regards to the ‘Call to the Ministry’.
The course content is God-centred and it glorifies God. As a student I have been blessed by the study guides and the text books that are prescribed for the course. . . . My prayer is that many will know about the seminary, especially our untrained local pastors who desperately need formal training for pastoral ministry. I believe that God will bless the people of Africa with the Gospel through the work of the Seminary.

These studies are helpful in my ministry because now I can preach Christ from the Old Testament.

I have benefited a lot since I enrolled with SGTS. I have found out that SGTS modules have academic depth. Secondly I have benefited spiritually as well as academically. For me SGTS is not just a college but a family. The church that I am leading, though it is small, has grown spiritually as well because of the lessons and messages that I have prepared thanks to the Lord and SGTS.
