Manda University

School of Divinity

Preparing and equipping students to rightly divide the Word of God and to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Mission of the School of Divinity

To fulfill the Great Commission.

“Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.” Matthew 28:16-20 (NKJV)
Manda University School of Divinity will equip and empower students with the truth of the Gospel and send them out throughout the globe to fulfill the Great Commission, impacting the world with the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is only His Word that can set the captives free from a life of misery, sin, and death, to a life of freedom, joy, and eternal life.
At Manda University, students who are called to preach the Word of God are given the guidance and tools necessary to navigate and understand the Word as it was intended to be understood, used, and practiced.
The faculty at Manda University have been called to the Great Commission. We are committed to upholding academic excellence while equipping our students for their calling in ministries. Our students are privileged to be taught and led by well-known, prestigious theological authors, professors, and ministers of the Word of God from around the world.
Manda University School of Divinity will prepare its students for both local and global ministries. Upon graduation, our students may choose to join Manda Global, an international association of ministers, and receive their pastoral license and ordination and have access to all of our facilities around the world.
