Five graduate Michigan Baptist School of Theology

DETROIT, MI – The Michigan Baptist School of Theology ADVANCE Program (formerly called Greater Detroit Baptist Association Contextualized Leadership Development) is an ADVANCE Center affiliated with Gateway Seminary in Ontario, California. On June 25, 2017, we held our commencement exercise at Temple of Faith Baptist Church, West Chicago, in Detroit, MI. Five students graduated with a Diploma in Christian Ministry. Dr. Warren Haynes, Gateway Seminary ADVANCE National Director, awarded the Diplomas and Rev. Rochelle Davis, Jr, pastor of Temple of Faith gave the Commencement message. The event was a celebration of hard work and achievement for the five students.

Gateway Seminary ADVANCE centers began with the mission to provide accessible ministry training at a post-high school level. Since 1980, ADVANCE Centers have offered affordable, quality education to ministry leaders across the United States and around the globe. ADVANCE centers are established under a cooperative agreement between Gateway Seminary and a local Southern Baptist Church, Association, or State Convention.
