About the Seminary
APTS is a cooperative ministry of the Assemblies of God national churches of Asia, Pacific Oceania and Assemblies of God World Missions-USA. A muti-national Board of Directors representing these various entities governs the school. The administration and faculty of APTS are also multi-national.
APTS exists to prepare ministerial leaders for the Pentecostal/Charismatic churches of the Asia Pacific region, and to serve as a resource center for assisting these churches to fulfill their biblical mandate. To this end, APTS provides advanced leadership training within the Pentecostal/ Charismatic tradition and a variety of theological, educational, and ministry services that seek to develop and enhance the effectiveness of the churches and students it serves. Specialized training is offered in theology, Bible, pastoral ministry, Christian education, Bible school ministry, evangelism, and missions.
An important goal of APTS is to conduct academically sound educational programs that are sensitive to the cultural issues and needs of the Asia Pacific region, while providing opportunities for students to learn through hands-on ministry experiences.
