The most important criteria for coming to study at the JWTC is the call to serve God. This is indispensable and will be examined in several different ways during the application process. The most significant steps are a series of interviews and the preaching of a sermon, during which the student’s call to be a preacher of God’s word will be tested. Their calling will also be examined by interaction between students and the faculty. This will take place prior to the commencement of B.A. studies, and will be revisited prior to the commencement of the M.A.T.S. studies. The reason for this approach is the great need for faithful men who will hold out the word of life and sustain Christ’s sheep.
