John Piper To Start a Seminary at Bethlehem Church

This is news! Bethlehem Baptist Church, where John Piper is pastor, is moving toward becoming an accredited college and seminary.

Here’s a bit from the official announcement:

The Bethlehem Institute has graduated nine classes of pastoral and missionary-destined men for Bible-saturated, God-centered ministry….

Now a flash point has been reached for moving to new levels of training and a new place of ministry.

The new levels of education include moving toward becoming an accredited college and seminary. That means offering as soon as is feasible an accredited BA in Biblical Studies and an accredited MA and MDiv at the seminary level.

I’m sure they won’t have a lack of applicants!
