AUSTRALIAN BAPTIST MISSIONARY SOCIETY
From our perspective, the Bachelor of Divinity and Bachelor of Theology degrees offered by the College provides appropriate training for people who wish to engage in professional ministry in an overseas missionary context. Further, our Society accepts the Masters and Doctoral degrees from Pacific College as adequate formal training for our staff who wish to engage in theological education in Third World settings.� Rev. Chris Pittendrigh (Overseas Secretary)
SUMMER INSTITUTE OF LINGUISTICS
One of the singular benefits of the Pacific College of Graduate Studies is that they have been able to offer academic training to students in the particular disciplines that they are wanting to study...In the main we have followed two streams, that of field linguistics and the other of counseling training. Both of these have been of excellent value to us. I therefore endorse the formal training that your college is offering to our field practitioners who otherwise would have to take a significant break from their work. Mr. David Cummings (Director)
THE WESLEYAN METHODIST CHURCH OF AUSTRALIA
The Wesleyan Methodist Church has worked in close relationship with P.C.G.S. for close to ten years, and we accept the degrees offered by Pacific College as adequate formal training for professional ministry.� Rev. Thomas Blythe (National Superintendent)
BAPTIST BIBLE TRIBUNE
Pacific International University will be offering theological and biblical courses to help enhance minister’s service both in Baptist denominational groups and transdenominationally. High quality video, audio and specialized studies have been prepared. Over 200 such courses are available.
The school will render a most valuable service to ministers in the field of religious and biblical studies. A highly qualified faculty will serve as mentors and advisors to those who will pursue distance learning.�� This wave of the future is increasingly becoming a method of choice for those more mature ministers, established in their churches, who will not uproot their families and move to a city with a theological or biblically oriented College.
I am happy to serve with Dr. Clifford Wilson, a distinguished scholar and archaeologist with impeccable credentials.�� Rev. Dr. James Combs.� (Former Editor)
