KBTC is a part of the Christian Life Education Network (CLEN) and issues degrees through Christian Life School of Theology (CLST). CLST was founded in 1983 by Dr. Ronald E. Cottle and has since become the largest ministerial training institute of its kind in the world (with currently over 30,000 students worldwide). Dr. Cottle’s vision is to see theological education return to the local church and community rather than sending away their ministers for training; CLST would bring the training to these ministers, right where they live.
Christian Life School of Theology (CLST) has been granted a religious exemption to grant degrees under the provision of the post-secondary Educational Authorization Act. CLST is an NGA, a non-governmental accredited educational institution and is associated with the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (NPEC) and the International Association of Bible Colleges and Seminaries (IABCS).
At KBTC we believe that every believer should understand their responsibility to be a leader. As followers of Christ, we are not called to simply attend a local church assembly once a week just for our own benefit. We are called to be in community with one another - sharing all that we have, including our story and our faith. Through this school, we hope you will be encouraged as you grow in understanding, to find your place and make your contribution to your community.
Every Class will transform your life and ministry through the very best in theological, leadership and ministry studies. These convenient classes, held once per month, will help you:
- Gain confidence in your biblical knowledge
- Learn how to better evangelize and disciple others
- Equip yourself to become an effective leader
- Gain greater perspective on your faith
- Enrich your life and fulfill your God-given purpose
