Policy Overview

St. Simons Christian Renewal Church

South Georgia College of Theology Administrative Policies

Our Program Basis

We have abbreviated our requirements for graduate and postgraduate degrees in an effort to hold the tuition to a minimum and allow busy ministers, and working students every opportunity for higher Spirit filled, prophetic, Christian education.

It is the desire of SGCT to mix the Word with the Spirit out of a deep well of the rich prophetic heritage that SGCT offers.

Staff & Faculty

We are blessed to have a rich base of faculty and staff. From the Director to the professors you will find individuals who have continue to study to show themselves approved, individuals of integrity and individuals willing to serve and assist you.

They are dedicated to teach and reach the world with the gospel and expand the Kingdom through quality Bible education.

Student Nondiscrimination Policy

The SGCT admits students of all race, color national and ethnic origin with all rights, privileges, programs and activates made available to students of SGCT.

The SGCT does not discriminate on the basis of race, color national or ethical origin in administration of its policies, loan policies or other school administration programs.

Statement Standards

All students are required to give a testimony of having accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. Each student is expected to conduct himself/herself in a manner that will at no time bring reproach upon our Savior or SGCT.

All students must be a working part of a local church. Time spent must be logged and turned into the SGCT office. These hours are figured into the student’s semester credit hours as personal hours as we are doers of the Word not just hearers only (students only).

SGCT recognizes life-learning experience for Doctoral degree and issues credit for such experience. However, SGCT Administration/Department Head must determine such credit during the candidate’s evaluation process.
