This is no clickbait, this is real. You can study and attain a formal theological training with the only catch that there will be, no paper awarded but who needs papers after all it is all about you getting to know God more.
Theological studies is not all about getting a good degree and papers but it is all about exploring the depth of God and learning core principles that might never be taught or explained in the Sunday or midweek service.
Or wait a minute, there is a quick hack where you can use the resourcecs and start a mini bible school together with the help from your pastor and maybe you could get yourself a certificate from your local church. Enough with the talks, here is the real deal.
Harvestime International Institute
An NGO called Harvestime International Network with the aim of recruiting, training, motivating, and mobilizing ministers, evangelists and pastors all for the work of the God gives you the answer.
Harvestime International Institute provides a complete bible school or theology curriculum and resources. These resources can be used as a study guide to theology which churches and individuals can have access to them.
The Harvestime International Institute course consists of 17 core modules with additional optional courses which would be good for you. These modules give you a comprehensive theology based guide with a bible school style structure of their courses.
Harvestime also encourage individuals and churches to come and take up their modules and start a bible school in their church to equip their leaders and members for the great harvest.
All these theological resources are free of charge and here is how you can get the resources and study theology for free.
Why Harvest time international institute?
Harvestime has an on campus institute which uses basically the same resources you are getting only that the campus is more inperson with tutors and probably a recognised paper. But, if you are not into the paper and school taught theology, they are best for you.
The Harvestime International Institute courses are Bible based and their courses and resources are well organied to deliver credible information to you that you would get in a bibe school, so they are the free alternative to paid bible school.
Harvestime is perfect for you if you are hungry for God and wants to explore Him but may not be having the time and maybe the money to attend a formal bible school.
They also offer their modules in different languages that means you can use it in different countries and this is essentially useful for church planters and missionaries in their field and even for the local church with the supported langauge.
