Abstract

As the number of religious associations and denominations in the USA proliferates, numerous training institutions will become necessary to prepare the ministers for the burgeoning number of churches. This project will attempt to answer the question of whether academic accreditation for a ministerial training program through TRACS is of benefit to the small Bible College and if so, In what way? Those colleges now holding accreditation through TRACS were surveyed to determine the actual or perceived benefits to the administration, faculty, denomination, and student. These benefits were weighed against the costs incurred in order to evaluate the process and the product.
