美國加州浸信會金門神學院 (Gateway Seminary), 中英雙語所 (CEB, Chinese-English Bilingual Program), 主旨在提供國際化的高規格神學教育, 塑造普世華人浸信會/教會的頂尖領袖。
Gateway diploma programs allow a person lacking an undergraduate degree to gain access to curriculum providing ministry preparation but without admission into a master’s degree program. The Diploma in Theological Essentials (Dp.T.E.) is intended to provide core theological training, primarily for lay ministry leaders or ministry leaders receiving vocational training in a church setting or in another academic setting. The diploma program meets the expressed needs of churches and students requesting a “shorter” program similar in size to traditional diploma and master’s degrees in other disciplines, and focused on core biblical and theological training commonly included in an M.Div. degree, but often unavailable in church-based vocational ministry training. As a result, the Dp.T.E. includes the established Gateway theological core (24 hrs.), Introduction to Ministry Formation, Theological Field Education, and Reflection on Ministry Formation (6 hrs.), and three courses focused on biblical/theological foundations.
金門神學院的文憑課程, 允許缺乏本科學士學位的人, 獲准修課預備事奉, 但無需經由碩士學位申請。中英雙語所 (CEB) 的神學必備文憑 The Diploma in Theological Essentials (Dp.T.E.), 主旨是為在教會或其他學術單位的平信徒領袖, 提供核心神學裝備, 滿足教會和學生對較短學位的需求, 著重道學碩士M.Div.程度的基礎聖經和神學訓練, 卻是教會無法提供的內容, 包括神學核心課程 (24學分), 事奉領導課程 (6學分), 及三門聖經神學課程。課程設計每學期兩門課, 加上冬季夏季密集班, 三年完成學位。
The following Dp.T.E. diploma objectives provide a broad statement of educational objectives central to the program. Each diploma objective includes a parenthetical list of courses required in the Dp.T.E. curriculum. For each required course, the faculty has prepared a course template which expresses more detailed course objectives seen as constituent parts of the broader degree objective. All instances of these courses, whether taught by permanent faculty or adjuncts are to be taught in accord with these templates. Dp.T.E. graduates should:
1. Exhibit an introductory graduate-level understanding of the Bible’s content, contexts, structure, and message; and demonstrate the ability to conduct solid research with a goal of properly applying the Bible to modern life. (S1112, S1113, S1312, S1313, S2521)
2. Demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the Christian historical, theological, and ethical frameworks commonly held in the believers’ church tradition to sustain ministerial leadership to God’s glory. (L1111, L1112, L1211, L1212, L1411)
3. Demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the Christian ethical framework commonly held in the believers’ church tradition to sustain ministerial leadership to God’s glory. (L1411)
4. Understand and establish appropriate life and ministry focus, priorities, and boundaries. (P1111, P1116)
5. Identify and affirm God’s shaping of the student as to calling, ministry giftedness, strengths and growth edges, and personality dynamics. (P1121-22)
The Essential Leadership Competencies (ELCs) for the Diploma in Theological Essentials are the same as those for the standard Master of Theological Essentials. The Dp.T.E. Essential Leadership Competencies are listed on the same page as the standard M.T.E.
金門神學院的使命是塑造基督徒領袖, 促使教授群以開發基本領導能力 (Essential Leadership), 培養學生成為成熟有果效的領袖, 為學位和課程目標提供依據, 並作為完成學位時參考的試金石。
The Dp.T.E. does not attempt to prepare students for a specific vocational role in the church, but seeks to provide the biblical and theological foundation needed for all ministry.
