School of Ministerial Education


The mission of the Texas Northeast First Academy for Ministerial Education is to train ministry aspirants for ordination and licensing.  In addition, the Academy seeks to provide an opportunity to hone and sharpen the skills of students already involved in ministry.


It is imperative that the Ministers, Elders, Pastors, and Missionaries receive information for personal development and continued education.  The staff of instructors, in concert with Bishop Hornsby’s vision, endeavors to empower not only Pastors, Elders, and Missionaries, but also Bible Teachers and all Christian Church Workers meet their holistic needs: personal, financial, spiritual, professional, and academic.
