WARM GREETINGS FROM THE ACADEMIC DEAN
I welcome you to APTS!
If you are considering studying in seminary, you are in the right place. We are an international, Pentecostal and missional seminary. I can assure you of a wonderful learning experience in the beautiful mountains of Baguio, also known as the Summer Capital of the Philippines. The temperatures here are very temperate to cool to cold in the year.
You will meet many international people, from your classmates who can be from 25 different countries, to your professors who are also multinational. You will experience Filipino culture and hospitality. This will be a celebration of diversity in all aspects for you.
This is a place of solace and reflection. You will have times of exuberant worship and quiet contemplation. There are many sacred spaces such as the chapels, prayer rooms, prayer mountain and prayer garden. I believe the LORD will speak to you – for as you seek Him, He will be found by you.
However, you will be here as a student. APTS has the best facilities. A library with more than 70,000 titles of books and journals; spacious and airy classrooms; most importantly very dedicated and qualified faculty who are interested in you as a person and want you to learn as best you can. It will not be an easy academic journey but a fruitful and challenging one with all the rigors of study as you engage and apply yourself.
Our purpose and goal is that you will be further prepared for what the LORD has called you to do. We care for you spiritually that you will fulfill the mission God’s has for you. You will achieve your destiny!
May the LORD’s guidance lead you to APTS. Once again, you are most welcomed!
In His grace, peace and love,
Teresa Chai, PhD
