Educational Services Designed for Christian Leaders
*Reclaiming educational prerogatives, biblical methods, standards and measures, is a goal of Primus University of Theology. All our degree programs, certificates and curriculum are designed for the specific and singular purpose of qualifying individuals for Christian ministry.
Primus University of Theology is a revolutionary revival of the Biblical style of teaching and is a classic model of the original Ecclesiastical Open University System. We believe, if you are a christian, you are in ministry; We are called to be living examples and witnesses of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The University is formed through Alliances with world class independent teaching ministries. This collegiality provides our students and graduates, with an ever expending network and cooperative interaction with likeminded Kingdom Leaders. At Primus University of Theology, our Graduates become our Adjunct Professors. This allows our students to learn from experts in their field of study, and the authors of the books and materials, they will be studying.

We are committed to responding to the need for lifelong learning opportunities by providing a full range of educational services adapted to the needs of ministers and church leaders. To accomplish this goal, the University recognizes transfer credits and awards credit for documented "Experiential learning," also referred to as “lifelong Learning” or “Prior Learning,” which is defined as college-level learning that takes place outside a college or university setting. Learning acquired through the following kinds of activities might qualify:
We recognize that biblical knowledge is worthy of credit and acknowledgement, and that honor and recognition should be awarded those who learn through revelation and independent study. It is through evaluation and assessment of Prior Knowledge and Performance Skills - Distance learning – Mentoring – Independent Study – Lectures and Workshops, that those in Ministry related fields are able to complete graduate degrees, primarily through Portfolio Assessment and at a fraction of the cost of the traditional seminary system.
Unlike other Universities, we believe:
John 4:20-24 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where it is necessary to worship.” 21 Jesus said to her, “Believe me, woman, that an hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father… 23 But an hour is coming—and now is —when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for indeed the Father seeks such people to be his worshipers. 24 God is spirit, and the ones who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Students may request credit for experiential learning by using the MAP - PAC© Process used for quantifying and granting college level credits.
The MAP-PAC© Differs From Other Programs
What is the MAP-PAC?
MAP is an acronym for ministry advancement portfolio and PAC means Process assessment and certification."
Allows for the assembling and presentation of documented learning regardless of how it was gained. It includes transcripts, degrees and certificates that have already been earned, and joins all other methods to form one complete portfolio of the total learning experience and converts it into transcript credits.
The MAP would include:
- Independent study/Online courses
- Thesis or Ministry Business Plan
- Written Works
Implements continued independent learning by degree candidates and is held open throughout their program. It is through the PAC that credits needed to complete a degree program, recognized during the initial MAP evaluation, are completed. At Primus University of Theology, our course material may consist of required texts, lecture notes, supplementary reading or exercises and linked to digital educational resources, depending upon the course.
The PAC would include:
- Credit by examination, Test-4-Credit (T4C©)
- Oral examination
Degree Programs and Distinctions
The particular degree title and distinction awarded to the degree candidate will reflect the learning and proficiencies of the candidate in a specific concentrated area of ministry. Any degree title or distinction must clearly indicate that it is a Christian ministry or Theology degree and must not be confused with a Liberal Arts Education. All degree programs are designed to improve the skills and success of those committed to Christian ministry.
At Primus University of Theology we offer Ministry degrees at the Bachelor’s, Master's and Doctoral levels in a broad range of Christian focuses. List below are a number of the degree distinctions we offer. These programs have been designed to prepare and equip you to effectively transform the mountains of culture.
Teaching has forever been an edict of the Church; it is from this edict that our educational system was spawned.
Historically, there have been two distinct authorities that charter or authorize educational institutions:
- The government or civil authority and
- The Church or Ecclesiastical authority
The MAP–PAC provides for the greatest amount of savings on degree program costs, through the use of teaching alliances, Alumnus Professors, online classes and independent study.
The classic model of the original Ecclesiastical Open University System, helps keep the cost of earning a degree through Primus University of Theology to a fraction of the cost of a traditional degree program.
We are looking forward to helping your achieve your degree goal.
