You need a minimum of 60 credit hours at a Bible college or university (typically two years of Bible training or the equivalent). Ethnos360 Bible Institute in Wisconsin (USA) exists to provide this Bible training with an emphasis on cross-cultural missions, but the requirement may also be met by other Bible or Christian college courses.

In specific cases, we might also accept equivalent (informal) training in a local church, or life experience. We invite you to talk with our Admissions Coach about your specific situation!

International Students

Along with similar-minded organizations in other countries, Ethnos Canada is part of an international network called ‘Global Partners’. Our training program is one of 8 others around the world that strive to provide the same training. As a Global Partner we are excited that you are considering our training program here in Canada.

Have you been in communication with a Global Partner member or leadership and your home church about your desire to be a part of your country’s Global Partner? If you have not had these conversations yet we highly recommend that you do. They will be thrilled to know that you are wanting to be a part of reaching the unreached with the Gospel, and to know that you are taking those next steps to be trained.

We are also thankful to be a Designated Learning Institution in the eyes of Immigration and Citizenship Canada to be able to receive you (Our Designated Learning Institution # isDLI#O111244519157).

We see husband and wife as a team. Ministry life is not just for the husband or just for the wife. Therefore, we expect both husband and wife to participate in all of the classes and do the required homework. This means that wives must also meet the requirements described above (Bible education & English language proficiency).

"But we have children, how can my wife be in the classes?" Read about our Academy and the care of pre-schoolers.
