They say about us

The feedback from our students speaks for itself:

Immediately upon entering the seminary, I found myself in a big family. The teachers are focused on building personal relationships with students, which was very valuable to me. I studied during quarantine, war, and a combination of distance and offline learning, which posed challenges for management and the need to constantly reorganize. But despite all the circumstances, I am grateful to the seminary for constantly taking care of me and continuing the educational process. The seminary's curriculum is focused on practice, so after a month of studying, I started preaching my first sermons at Sunday services.

While studying at the seminary, I gained not only knowledge, but also a big family. Those classmates with whom we read books at night became my close friends, and the knowledge we gained became tools in our ministries. The time passed quickly, and it is a pity that the war and the coronavirus tried to interrupt our studies, but God is good and allowed us to continue to have community around the Word of God. God blessed this time, gave us the tools and understanding of how to use them in everyday life, so I recommend studying to everyone who wants to become a conscious Christian, understanding what they believe and whom they profess.

Mykyta Volodsky


For me personally, the seminary is a place of growth and development. During the four years of study, I grew spiritually, was filled with new and important knowledge, and formed as a leader. All this influenced the development and quality of my future ministry in the church.

We should not forget the value of new acquaintances and Christian fellowship within the seminary. The seminary "gave" me real friends, with whom I have continued to communicate and serve for years.

Nadezhda Shevchenko


I studied at the Bachelor of Theology program, and I am grateful to the Lord and the Seminary teachers for the opportunity to receive a high quality spiritual education. During my studies, I was able to devote more time to in-depth study of Scripture, the study of theology, church history and mission, etc.

The educational program is designed to motivate students to have a personal relationship with God and help them grow spiritually, knowing the Lord Jesus Christ, as well as to gain skills for practical ministry in the church. I use all this in my current pastoral ministry.
