adonai international THEOLOGICAL college & seminary
A Few Testimonials
I sincerely believe that AICU is the right theological institution for men and women who really want to answer the calling that God has placed on their lives. The institution is extremely committed in providing quality and affordable education and the courses are absolutely Bible-based and Christ-centered. I have a B.S. in accounting and have been working as an Accountant/Auditor for several years. My decision to break out of the corporate world mentality and into the ministry was a difficult one.
Though my ultimate desire was to allow God to prepare me for the ministry. However, I knew I had to do my part by getting formal education. After reading the catalogue of several accredited and reputable distance theological institutions, I chose AICU. The executive president and chancellor, Bishop Dr. R. W. Chea is truly a man of God who is willing to give it all to encourage students to achieve success. When I contacted the institution, Dr. Chea took time to walk me through the process and advised me on the program that will suit my goals.
Prior to my enrollment in the Master of Ministry program, I must admit that I had a wrong perception about Bible courses in general. Due to the fact that preachers use only the Bible for preaching, I had the impression that all-theological study depends solely on the Bible. In other words all theological courses are based on the Bible and are very easy to pursue. Contrary to this wrong notion, when I received my first course materials I came to the realization that studying the right courses with the right college is quite amazing and rewarding.
AICU degree programs and courses are exciting and challenging. Choosing AICU is the most sagacious decision I have ever made and I am looking forward to earning my M.Min.

I have always desired a formal training in Theology and AICU offered me that unique opportunity to undergo that theological training. My time at Adonai has been very wonderful and rewarding. I almost gave up when I started because I felt that I could not cope with it. But the desire to learn and the structure of the program motivated me to stay on.
The availability of a wide range of programs that span from Certificate level to Ph.D. level is commendable. The courses were well structured and tailored to meet my need. I very much admired the flexibility and also the wide range of choices, which enabled me to select the program I wanted to pursue. The ease with which I obtained textbooks for my program is second to none. I had the opportunity of reading an M.Th.S. program in theology without sitting in the lecture halls and travelling long distances.
The help I received throughout the course was excellent, the motivation from the Course director at the University was also great and that propelled me to complete the program in good time. If you are considering Theological, Academic and Professional training under a highly spiritual atmosphere with a lot of support, then I unreservedly recommend AICU.

I chose AICU as I was looking for a theological institution that would on the one hand give me the flexibility to pursue a Master’s degree in Christian Education at my own pace and on the other hand would offer a reputable degree at a very reasonable price. As I sought to answer the calling that God has placed on me to teach Biblical truth to others, AICU has given me the tools that I needed to apply to creating good quality Christian education programs for Baptist churches in the United Kingdom. The executive president and chancellor, Bishop Dr. R. W. Chea, was always helpful and offered wonderful encourage along the way. Choosing AICU was definitely the right decision for me and I fully intend to pursue a further degree with them in the near future.

How are you doing?
…By the way, I had breakfast yesterday with Dr. Guy Chevreau, who is doing a conference with us at the local church where I am the prayer pastor. Guy received his Th.D. from the Toronto School of Theology. Eddie, my pastor, had reminded Guy that I was working on a degree through Adonai. So he quizzed me about the school, its offerings, etc. We discussed Simon Chan's Spiritual Theology as this is the course I had just completed. Guy was excited and was encouraging about my pressing in and completing my coursework.
Blessings to you my friend!

Thank you so much for your willingness to work with myself and Brea as we pursue our education. It has been a real joy to attend Adonai... …I want to thank you for the opportunity that Adonai has provided for my wife and me. The schedule and pace of vocational ministry makes it difficult to pursue ministry and on-going education. Adonai has made that possible! I’ve got an undergraduate degree from a state university, and a master’s of divinity from a Southern Baptist seminary. However, the education and experience that Adonai has provided has filled a distinct educational need that the others’ have not been able to meet. Thank you for the blessings this school provides.

I did my B.A. Ministry degree through Adonai Christian University from January 2012 until Jun 2015. I was glad to find a practical ministry degree to help me as I began in ministry. I enjoyed reading a wide range of books in my second and third year, as I was able to learn a great deal from different Christian scholars. I was most impressed by the excellence of the administration at the Seminary, and how assistance was always easy to get! If you are looking for a university that gives you guidance as you study via distance learning, then AICU is for you!

Dear Dr. Chea:
As you are aware, I have recently enrolled as a student with AICU in the Associate of Ministry Program.
I feel compelled to let you know that I have been tremendously blessed so far by the study material that is provided for this program. The courses that I have taken so far have helped me appreciate more that although Salvation is a personal experience with God, it was never intended to be a selfish experience. The courses have also highlighted the need to have discipleship training made available for all believers so they can be effective multipliers of souls for the Kingdom of God.
Whilst service is a requirement of Christians, the courses have emphasized the need for me to have plans and objectives for my life that are in harmony with God’s plans and purpose. These courses have correctly brought the focus back on my personal purpose and ministry within the context of God’s overarching plan for this world.
The courses have also helped me to understand why too many people just live purposeless lives. They do not know or appreciate that God is a God of purpose and he wants them to be a part of fulfilling that purpose for mankind.
The purpose of my personal ministry is to teach the people of God the Word of God in the context of practical Christianity today and equipping them to effectively disciple others so that God’s Will may be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Although the coursework schedule is intense, I am excited about how AICU has provided me an affordable opportunity to further equip myself for a more effective ministry.
Whenever the opportunity presents itself, I will definitely recommend AICU to others who may wish to further equip themselves for effective and informed ministry. I believe AICU is a blessing to the global Christian community.
Blessings Abound and Maranatha!
