Studying at CTS

Sharing the facilities of Radiant Life Church in Greenville, North Carolina, we are conveniently located across the street from J.C. Penney at the Greenville Mall. Our address is 2001 Charles Boulevard, in Greenville, NC.

Evening classes are offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings during the autumn and spring from 7:00 – 9:15.

Online Classes

This is the convenient choice for many of our students. Students can take classes that work with their schedule and view the videos online, or listen to the audios and complete the coursework and submit it all online.

Extension Classes

We have missions organizations and churches that want to provide a seminary education to their people. The extension classrooms are an excellent means of providing a seminary education to persons in their locale who are interested. These Facilitate the curriculum we provide – either by teaching the courses themselves (or via their qualified staff), or using the videos provided. This is an excellent means to provide a seminary education locally.

Distance Learning

Some of our students live across the globe and are unable to break away from their duties to attend classes, particularly if they have limited internet capability. This is where our Distance Learning program comes in. We provide the student with a USB Stick with the course material and they can then complete their course work at their own pace on their laptop or desktop computer. When a course is completed they simply mail in their course work or email it when they are back at an internet accessible locale.
