Truth, Faith and study

Virginia Triumphant College & Seminary was founded for the primary purpose to provide religious training and theological education. The school has been granted a religious exemption from the requirements of certification to operate a postsecondary institution in the Commonwealth of Virginia by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, pursuant to 8 VAC 40-31-50 (A) (2) of the Virginia Administrative Code

The College & Seminary welcomes students of all faiths (or no faith) and as a matter of policy seeks to promote academic freedom, exploration of conscience and faith. Ministers within certain bodies are invited for pastoral and academic review of doctoral assets. Such assets are a combination of academic performance, community standing and praxis. The teaching model is categorical (advisory & evaluative) for doctoral candidates.

Aims and ends

Assuring the Aims and Ends of theological and religious education is what the school is all about. The school is largely non-traditional with a combination of the classroom and non-classroom setting with  teaching and curricula performance models. There are essentially three teaching modalities and subjects are set in a module format. The teaching models are as follows:

A. Pedagogical-[ Where the learning is traditional and teacher-centered with students. It is instructor-directed].

B. Andragogical -[Where the learning is non-traditional for the mature, self-motivated and independent candidate under a learning contract, study-guide or free-style exploration in reaching defined research objectives].

C.  Categorical-[Where the learning process may be integrative, advisory, evaluative and consultative in arriving at assessment and a composite results. Praxis and performance or internships tend to be a part of assessments].

And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from him."  I John 5:14-15 NAS
