Awards and Honors

EWST offers a Bachelor of Arts in Theology program accredited by the Polish Ministry of Higher Education and Science. The program is designed to prepare students for ministry in churches, fellowships, Christian organizations, and missions, as well as further study in Poland and abroad.

Student Practicum and Codependency Ministry

The program includes a student practicum, where students learn to set goals, plan a ministry schedule, and be consistently involved in a specific ministry for one year. One of the student practicum ministries is the "Dorota Mita," which was developed for codependent individuals and includes a detailed program that can be used in support group meetings and pastoral care duties.

Impact of KMF Grant

A KMF grant helped in promoting the project in the rehabilitation clinic, distributing leaflets among church members and during meetings held in the city, and preparing information for the church's website and brochure. The funds received in 2018 allowed students to take further steps for their personal development in ministry.

Smart: Unity and Respect Among Denominations

EST brings together students from different churches and backgrounds, including Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal, Brethren, Catholic fellowships, and independent evangelical churches. The program fosters mutual respect and cooperation among students, which carries over into their ministries during their studies and after graduation.

Sustainable: Ministry Practice as Part of Curriculum

Ministry practice is an integral part of the EST curriculum in the B.A. program, requiring students to be involved in ministry internships that engage them in a wide variety of Christian service. Students serve as pastors, leaders, workers, and mentors in churches, communities, Christian organizations, and mission trips.

Ongoing Discipleship and Service

Faculty members spend a certain number of hours with their students and oversee student internships, visiting them in their churches and communities. Faculty and administrative staff serve together in local churches, fellowships, and various ministry projects in Wroclaw and throughout Poland, with the purpose of ongoing discipleship and service.

Evangelism School in Poland
About Biblical Theological Seminary of Poland

During the late 1980's, Polish pastor Dr. Zygmunt Karel and Dr. Mark Young (and American educator) developed an interdenominational school of theology to strengthen the evangelical movement in Poland. The courses were primarily for the Polish people and taught in the Polish language. In October 1990, students began studying at Biblical Theological Seminary, Wroclaw. Graduates have become involved in church leadership, church planting, advanced education, foreign missions, education, ministries to youth and children, evangelistic outreach, etc. The Biblical Theological Seminary of Poland has received a Certificate of Incorporation of Domestic Non-Profit Corporation, and has become a certified 501(c)3. In 2005, the name was changed from Biblical Theological Seminary to Evangelical School of Theology. EST submitted application for national accreditation to the Polish Ministry of Higher Education and Science. In 2006, EST was recognized in Poland as an accredited school and is the first non-public, non-denominational school in Poland to receive accreditation. EST Educational Center offers a B.A. program, Open Academy of Theology (for churches), Academy of Third Age (for seniors) and conferences, lectures, workshops, training courses and concerts. The EST EC library has approximately 21,000 volumes, which is the largest evangelical collection in Poland. From 1990 to the present, EST has sought to stay focused on its core purpose and goals while making adjustments and being creative to meet new challenges and changes in Poland and its people. We are grateful to the Lord who has faithfully provided for the financial, spiritual and practical needs of EST since 1990. Please pray with us as we continue in His service “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up…” (Ephesians 4:12).
