Do I need a Bachelor's Degree to enroll?
No, there is no prior study required. However, these classes are taught at a Master's degree level, so a decent understanding of reading and writing is helpful. The 101 Basics Course is a great place to start, and will give you a benchmark for the remainder of the program.

You do need to be 16 or older to enroll.

What are the prerequisites?
The only prerequisites are a basic knowledge of Scripture and a motivation to grow and learn. 

A PREREQUISITES course is included in the program. 

As soon as you enroll, you gain access to the prerequisites course. This will enable you to brush up on theology and Scripture if you're rusty or if you're new to these studies. 
Can I get a refund?
We understand that circumstances change, and you may not be able to continue studying for whatever reason.
This is why we offer a full month free inside the program when you join, so you can see for yourself if the course is right for you without being charged a cent.
We even send you an email reminder BEFORE your card is ever charged. 
After that month, you may withdraw at any time, and your card will not be billed for the next billing cycle. 
Withdrawing is a hassle-free one step process at
How much time will each class take?
We're the home of the FASTCLASS experience where we pack a full semester of learning into a quick modular format. 
You can probably complete one or two courses per month. It's up to you. You can even work faster or, of course, more slowly. 
Classes are offered... 
1. Live in Person
2. Live Online
3. Video Replay
Take your pick. All the webinars and mini-courses are optional. 
What do you believe?
The staff, faculty, and teachings of VSBM are conservative and evangelical in theology and life. We believe the Bible, interpreted according to grammatical-historical methodology, is the supreme authority for faith and life. 

We also see God's Amazing Grace as the centerpiece of Scripture and Theology. 

  • The heart of Scripture is Christ. 
  • The heart of Christ is Grace. 
  • The heart of Grace is the Cross. 

We affirm the doctrinal statement of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, and fully endorse the Chicago Statements on Biblical Inerrancy and Hermeneutics.
Is Veritas "woke"? No.
Is Veritas into "social justice"? No. We believe in "social ministry" but we stand against the current movement of "social justice."
Is Veritas into Liberation Theology. No
Is Veritas political? No. But we do speak to moral issues affecting society and on occasion politics.
How long for a Master of Ministry Certification?
The Master of Ministry certification will take about 2-3 years. You can complete it faster if you like. Each year offers 4 classes plus one service project, for a total of 12 classes and 3 service projects.
Is Veritas School of Biblical Ministry accredited?
No. We are not accredited and we do not offer a degree.
But these are the same classes that have been taught for over 25 years by Dr. Bill Giovannetti at seminary and university in two states. The goal is that you get equipped for greater, deeper, broader ministry effectiveness than ever before -- for Christ and His Gospel!

We are working on a partnership with A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary and you "may" receive credit there for an additional fee. 

Details coming soon. 
Do I have to take tests and turn in homework?
Our goal is to expose as many students as possible to in-depth equipping and teaching in handling God's Word and leading God's church.

Homework is required for the Master of Ministry degree.

Homework is NOT required, however, if you simply want to audit the program. 

Once you begin a course, all work must be submitted within 9 months to obtain credit for that course. 

Auditors will be awarded a Certificate of Completion. 
Do you give grades?
Our goal is equipping and informing, not adding pressure to your life. 

Here is our grading system: 

PASS (Credit)
PASS (Audit)
You CAN Do this!
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)
