To study theology is to study God, not for the sake of information but for transformation. When we study His Word in humility He comes to form Himself in us so that our lives can support the message that we bring.
The School of Theology exists to create opportunities for theological engagement; both through informal courses and formal academic programmes. We aim to develop ministers, thinkers, worshippers and scholars with the competence, character and courage to be faithful stewards of God’s Word in the Church and the world.
“All of us are theologians, whether we are aware of it or not; our very lives reflect our theology, so the cure for ‘bad theology’ is not ‘no theology’, but ‘good theology’.” Dr Corné Bekker

Shofar Institute partners with the South African Theological Seminary (SATS) when presenting accredited training to ensure that the qualification gained is nationally and internationally comparable and that credits earned are “portable”, i.e. transferable to other accredited, registered institutions.
SATS is a fully accredited academic institute that is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and the Council for Higher Education (CHE). In practice this means that students who enrol for formal academic programmes with Shofar Institute will receive a SATS degree upon completion of their studies.
