Associations & Affiliations

Midwestern School of Divinity has been established for the sole purpose of issuing credentials to men and women as certified, licensed and ordained professional ministers. With this status we may train, as well as endorse ministers of the Abyssinian Apostolic Church and its provinces.

Our emphasis is not to achieve secular accreditation, although we issue degrees for ministry purposes only. Our mission is to equip the minister with practical education for his/her ministry. We continue in this practical path as the means of fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

Although accreditation is a totally voluntary decision, Midwestern School of Divinity has decided to obtain membership and recognition form reputable Ecclesiastic organizations only. This provides MSD the liberty to design and offer courses that are spiritual, as well as practical.

MSD is a recognized member of the following Ecclesiastic bodies:
