Biblical Women's Institute

BIBLICAL WOMEN's INSTITUTE (BWI)

The BWI program aims to equip women with biblical and theological training for any ministry context God has given them. We do this by providing seminary-quality teaching at a reduced time-commitment, reduced workload, and reduced cost ($25 per class!) for women who are busy with careers, ministry, or family commitments. All women, regardless of educational background, are invited to enroll - this certificate program is designed for any woman, anywhere.

BWI also offers a program for women who are planning to serve overseas alongside their husband with the International Mission Board.

BWI courses do not carry academic credit and cannot be leveled into graduate or undergraduate course credit. The BWI programs are designed to equip women to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission, but are not controlled under the academic processes of the institution.

IMB Spouse Requirements

To meet the IMB's Spouse Education Requirements, you will need either 1 undergraduate/graduate course or 2 certificate-level courses in each of the categories of Old Testament, New Testament, Theology, and Elective. Through the GO Certificates program or the BWI at Southeastern, you can meet this requirement by taking 2 certificate courses per category. You have the option to mix and match GO Certificate courses and BWI courses to meet these requirements. Click on either track below to learn more. 

Each GO Certificate class is divided up into thirty, 20-minute videos with a weekly reading requirement. This is 10 hours of lecture per course. Students could complete the GO Certificate classes on their own schedule and as quickly as they need. Quizzes are embedded into the videos, so besides the reading, no other work is required. This class functions much like an independent study. GO Certificates allow the flexibility to complete your requirements at your own pace.

Old Testament Requirement: GO CERT Old Testament and GO CERT Hermeneutics

New Testament Requirement: GO CERT New Testament and GO CERT Acts Book Study

Theology Requirement: GO CERT Christian Theology and GO CERT Historical Theology

Elective Requirement: Any 2 other available courses
