Our region (the mountain west) appeals to a certain pioneering personality. Full of small towns and hard-working folks, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, and their adjoining states are often a difficult place to find a solid conservative God honoring Churches.
With this in mind The WEST Institute, located at Laramie Valley Chapel in Laramie, WY has partnered with Shepherds Theological Seminary in Cary, NC to provide a highly accredited (ATS), 41 credit hour Masters degree or diploma to help anyone wanting to be better serve in their families, local church, or even vocational ministry.
The mission of The WEST Institute is to see the lives of men and women changed through the study and personal application of God’s Word. They strive to stretch students in their faith through intense study of the Bible, living in community with other believers, and experiencing God’s creation. In one calendar year, students in our Master’s program earn a fully accredited Master’s degree and equip themselves for a more effective life of ministry.
The West Institute also offers the Bible Institute, a one-year guided Bible study through the whole of Scripture.
