Laramie Valley Chapel has long seen the need for accredited biblical education closer to home that would provide men and women a solid foundation in the Word to build their lives upon. By starting The West Institute and partnering with Shepherds Theological Seminary’s, we have been able to accomplish this goal. Biblical education will help believers to better serve in their families, local church, vocational ministry, or any line of work. Students earn a 41 credit-hour Master of Theological Studies degree from Shepherds Theological Seminary in Cary, NC.
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. We 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.
