Bethel Christian University., recognizes the complexity and sophistication of contemporary society, the extremes in Ministries of the day, as well as widespread spiritual apathy. The primary purpose of Bethel Christian University is to equip men and women for dynamic leadership in local churches and related “field ministries”.
The University is open to all Christians, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers, Christian Counselors, Christian Sunday School Workers of any denomination, etc.
It is not just an addition to the numerous Theological University, But rather an accomplishment of a bold, meticulous, and dedicated planning for specialist Ministerial/Theological Training in various Ministries.
The University is set out to train would-be Ministers. Those that are already in the ministry,
but have no formal ministerial training are also welcome.
The growth of ministries in the world is hampered due to lack of trained ministers. These grossly inadequately trained ministers are responsible for the hap-hazard running of most of our churches.
The University maintains that these factors create an imperative to prepare leaders who possess academic excellence beyond the University and Bible College levels, and ministerial balance between the intellectual, practical, and spiritual commitment to Christ, His Word, and His Service. Bethel Christian University, therefore maintains a curriculum plans a standard of character, and a ministry model that unite to accomplish the University’s purpose.
As a theological training center, the qualities necessary for church leadership outlined in 1st
Timothy 3 and Titus 1, set the standard of Bethel Christian University’s faculty to communicate through example and precept. In addition to these Biblical qualities, Bethel Christian University, seeks to develop men and women to be independent learners who read and think. Bethel Christian University’s graduates should be disciplined in their personal lives and self-motivated. The University strives to produce men and women who are both practical and flexible, with the ability to transform classroom knowledge into people – related ministries.
Finally, it is these ills that the University is out to combat by a way of highly manpower Theological Training and for those who cannot leave their jobs to a full-time Bible College.
The founding of the University marked the beginning of a call with an opportunity. The call was for a center where Theological and Ministerial courses could be studied as profoundly as they were being studied in other Theological Seminaries and Universities across the world.
The response to this call has been born and nurtured by prayers by our beloved brother Prof. Wilson Adoh who founded the University. The University was Incorporated in the State of Kansas as a Religious University. It is a Religious Educational Institution of Higher learning. The University is governed by a Board of Directors, and Board of Regents and Education.
Bethel Christian University is incorporated as a graduate institution and is authorized to grant graduate degree in Theological and Christian Educational courses as the Board of Directors determine.
Bethel Christian University operates a Scholarship scheme sponsored through Free-Will Offerings, General Public Donations, Grants from Christian Organizations, and Men and Women within and outside Bethel Families. The University does not and will not participate in or intends to accept funds from any State or Federal Financial Aid Agency programs, such as Student Loans, Grants, or Scholarship. This will enable us maintain the issue of separation of Church and State, as Jesus said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to GOD the things that are GOD’s” Mark 12:17. The Scholarship committee awards scholarship to worthy students on the basis of their Christian character, academic ability, financial need and availability of funds.

Bethel Christian University Concepts
The University concept of Theological Education is a response to the often heard comment, “my college and seminary training was not practical for the real world. It just didn’t prepare me for the ministry”. This impractical approach to education is usually the result of course and programs which are designed and implemented by individuals who do not have ministerial
experience and training. This is the “Ivory Towers” approach to education. To make education practical for the real world, Bethel Christian University offers courses of study and degree programs created by individuals who are recognized as experienced experts in their respective areas of knowledge.
