EQUIPPING MARKETPLACE LEADERS AND DISCIPLES
BGST is built to provide flexible, relevant and quality theological education for marketplace leaders and disciples. Our aim is to enable them to apply their faith well to their work, church and everyday life, so that they may become effectively ambassadors for Christ where they are called.
INTEGRATIVE EVANGELICAL SCHOOL
BGST is an evangelical school. Our training is grounded on the love of Christ, the foundation of the Scriptures and the wisdom of the Christian tradition over the last 2,000 years. To help marketplace Christians apply their faith, we also emphasises Integrative studies where students learn how to engage diverse industries and disciplines biblically and theologically.

80% of BGST students are working full time in their diverse marketplaces in the civil service, technology, finance, engineering and legal sectors, for example. We tailor students’ training, research, and discussions to enable them to integrate their faith in their marketplace contexts.
Marketplace Christians can only steward their learning and lead well if they are grounded robustly in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. For this reason, we emphasis the personal spiritual formation and development of our students through formation practicums, retreats and prayer exercises.
We recognise that marketplace students have to balance between work, home and ministry commitments. To enable them to study well, BGST structures most of its courses as hybrid learning, that is, intermingling self-paced lecturing learning, online Zoom tutorials and in-person interaction for maximum learning and interaction. Students can also take online Self-Paced Learning courses to study at their own pace, anytime, anywhere.
STUDY AT YOUR OWN PACE
Students can choose from a wide range of courses and postgraduate programmes and study at their own pace. They can simply sign up for a course on audit, or pursue more formal studies through one of our postgraduate programmes like the Graduate Certificates.
