What is the Average Time from Admission to Ordination in the

Ekklesia Epignostika Seminary Program?

The average time from admission to Holy Orders I in the Ekklesia Epignostika Seminary to graduation and ordination to the priesthood is approximately 2.5 -3 years.

What is the Learning Format?

We offer the majority of our courses online via our Google classrooms. We also offer the same courses in a written format. The written format may take longer than the average time for completion, however, may be the better choice for some students.

How Do You Assess the Students?

The written assessments are administered via an online testing site.

The practicum assessments are offered in our Google classrooms.

Assessments for seminarians who have poor or no digital connectivity are administered via a written format.

Who Are My Classmates?

Every seminarian is a member of a class of peers who will most likely attend classes online together and will become ordained together. This gift of companionship is an essential component of attending a seminary. Learning to be a productive and active member of a group is an integral part of priestly formation. Eventually, life-long friendships may be established. These relationships are excellent preparation for the years ahead in ministry.
