We transform Everyday Christians into INVINCIBLE CHANGE AGENTS for ETERNITY. 
A note from Dr. Bill Giovannetti
 
25,915 days. That's how long the average human lives. One lifetime. We each get one lifetime.

For the world, that lifetime is all there is.

But for the Christian, that lifetime is just a prelude to eternity. 25,915 days doesn't even scratch the surface.

But, what we do with this lifetime still matters.
 
It matters more than we think.

It matters because what we do with our days on earth will actually define our days in heaven.

When, as a Christian, you stand before God, what will you have done on earth that matters for eternity?

What everlasting difference will your life have made?

At Veritas School we aren't just teaching theology, though we do that.
 
We aren't just equipping for high impact ministries, though we do that too.
At Veritas, we are transforming everyday Christians into INVINCIBLE CHANGE AGENTS for eternity.

That's our purpose. That's why we exist. That's why we do everything we do.

We are transforming everyday Christians like you and me into change agents for eternity. We want to bring as many people with us as we can. We want to lay up for ourselves as much treasure in heaven as we can. 

This is our transcendent and glorious and supernatural purpose. This is what gives meaning to all of us at Veritas.

This is how we say thank you for our Savior Jesus, and for his amazing grace.

Only one life, 'twill soon be past / Only what's done for Christ will last.

So here's the question for you: What will you do with whatever's left of your 25,915 days?

Click this link only if you want to maximize your experience of God's grace now, to maximize your impact here on earth, and to lay up yourself maximum treasures in heaven forever.

You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

Are You Hungry to Go Deeper, and to Grow in Your Faith and Understanding of God?
As a passionate Christian, you are called into a whole, intimate relationship with God. Whether you're a new believer, or have been serving God for years, you've laid down your life to love and serve him wherever you have influence... in your workplace, your family, or perhaps as a volunteer in your church. Your heart burns to see other people come to know him, and develop a relationship with God for themselves.
 
But despite all this, do you ever feel as if you're only scratching the surface when it comes to understanding the mysteries of God's word, and what they mean for your life?
Do You Struggle to Read, Interpret and Apply the Word of God in Your Life?
So many passionate, committed Christians find reading and understanding Biblical theology incredibly challenging. Unless you're willing to put your life on hold for an expensive and time-consuming degree, finding answers to your biblical questions and going deeper can feel overwhelming.
 
Have you found yourself experiencing ANY of the following in your pursuit of truth?
  • Are you longing for a greater understanding of Scripture and how the biblical narrative fits together into a harmonious whole? But you don't know where to turn to for answers that are simple to understand and based in truth...
  • Do you wish you had more Bible verses and answers on-hand when friends and family ask you about your faith? But you're afraid of taking the bible out of context and giving them the wrong answers...
  • Are you unsatisfied with a superficial understanding of the Bible, and a shallow relationship with God? But no reading plan, sermon, or theological book has given you the growth and revelation that you're looking for...
  • Do you wish you could better discern what God has to say in His Scriptures, and the implications of the Gospel in your own life? But finding purpose and meaning in the Bible always feels difficult and far-fetched...
  • Have you considered studying theology to deepen your faith and Biblical knowledge? But you've only been able to find intensive degrees that force you to put your life on hold for study...
  • Do you struggle to understand and process the current world events and what God's perspective is towards them? But you don't know how to build up a biblical worldview with so many opinions online...
If you've answered "YES" to any of the questions above, or you're simply just looking to grow in your understanding of the Bible, you're in the right place...
You Deserve to Have Access to Strong, Bible-Based Teaching That Nourishes Your Soul and Spirit...
Without having to sacrifice your family, quit your day job, or invest tens of thousands on a degree! Sadly though, this type of teaching has never been more difficult to find for lay Christians. Many churches have stopped emphasizing theology in their teaching, and opted for more practical, topical messages instead...

And as a result? We're facing spiritual immaturity and biblical illiteracy like we've never seen before around our nation! At Veritas School of Biblical Ministry, we're on a mission to raise up a new generation of everyday believers who can flip this narrative, and stop this epidemic in its tracks...
Here's a quick VIDEO WALK-THROUGH of what you'll receive immediately when you start your FREE enrollment...
Hi, I'm Bill Giovannetti,
Founder of Veritas School of Biblical Ministry...
And I understand that feeling of dissatisfaction in your faith all too well. For years, I was the poster child for a faithful servant of Christ...
  • I was serving non-stop at Youth Group, on worship teams, in prayer meetings, and during Sunday services to try and find meaning
  • I was reading every trending Christian book to search for answers and truth
  • I was listening intently to sermons and podcasts to find revelation
  • I was praying for understanding and a biblical perspective on the world around me
  • I was diligently attending and leading Bible studies, trying to piece together my knowledge of Scriptures
On the outside, I was checking all the boxes. But on the inside, I was feeling beyond confused, and struggling to find the answers I needed. If my experience sounds familiar to you too, you're not alone. And there is good news...
Dr. Bill Giovannetti
Pastor | Professor | Author
There is More to Your Christian Walk Than This, and it is Possible to Move Past the Surface-Level, and Find True Understanding in Your Faith
The truth is, so many Christians are taught how to serve God, but not how to know God. They study Christian service, but not Christ himself. In my own walk, I was trapped in a web of exhausting duties and religious obligations... When in reality, I needed teaching that was less about my behavior, and more about God's nature.

So I embarked on a new path... I enrolled in seminary, put my life on pause for 3 intensive years of study, and invested tens of thousands of dollars to gain a theological basis for my faith. I've since used that knowledge on a daily basis, and spent 25+ years instilling it to thousands of people in churches and universities in America. 

But what I've come to realize is that this understanding of the Bible is essential for all Christians! Yet up until now, it has been near-impossible to access in a systematic and organize way–unless you have the time, money, and freedom to invest thousands of dollars at a graduate-level.
Why Should the Deepest Wonders of God's Love be Reserved for Scholars, Professional Clergy, and Pastors?
At Veritas School of Biblical Ministry, we believe that God gave all His truth, to all His people. We're on a mission to bring the church back to the Bible, and the Bible back to the church.

We've combined decades of pastoral experience in large churches, with over 25 years teaching theology in Christian colleges and seminaries... And as a result, we've developed a powerful ministry training program. We're helping everyday believers like yourself gain a theological understanding of the Bible and their faith!

Finally, you can access an online seminary for everyday people... without a bachelor's degree, without quitting your day job, and without a $40K+ investment.
With a Newfound Theological Understanding of Scripture, You Can...
Reach
YOUR WORLD FOR CHRIST AND THE GOSPEL
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

LEGALISM, CONFUSION, GUILT AND SHAME
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage
(Galatians 5:1)
Experience
A LIFE OF GRACE-POWERED HOLINESS
I commend you to God and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. (Acts 20:32)
Grow
YOUR MINISTRY, CHURCH, GROUP, OR CLASS
Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly... and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith. (Acts 6:7)
Rest
IN PEACE WITH GOD AND YOUR RICHES IN CHRIST
So that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. (Acts 20:24)

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.

Live lectures are 2-3 hours per session, and 4-6 sessions per class. 

THERE ARE NO DEADLINES. You can work at your own pace.

In between each class, we offer and OPTIONAL Mini Course (such as 115 Providence) or Webinar (Such as Eternal Security). 

You can stay as busy or as relaxed as needed to thrive in our program. It's always up to you!
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 will it take me to complete my Master of Ministry certification program?
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.
Do I have to come to California?
No. 
Classes will be offered live (when permissible) at Pathway Church in California, and you are welcome to attend. 
You are also welcome to attend via the online portal. You will be able to ask questions, and to see the classroom and professor. You will also have access to all downloads and materials.
Please login to each session early to leave time to troubleshoot technical issues.
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. 
Will I study Hebrew and Greek?
We offer course 401 STARTING BIBLICAL GREEK as an extra add-on to our program. This is entirely optional. It's a kinder, gentler way of learning New Testament Greek.

At this point, we are not offering Hebrew classes, though students may cross-register with A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary for Hebrew. 
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. 
How do the SERVICE PROJECTS work?
The Master of Ministry program includes 3 Service Projects, in volunteering, teaching, and leading. 

If you are already participating in these activities in your church or any other ministry setting, great! You can count that experience to satisfy this requirement. 

If you're not already serving in these ways, your Service Project is a great reason to get started. 

Details will be given during your program of study. 
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)
