Bible Training Centre for Pastors and Leaders

The Bible Training Centre for Pastors and Leaders (BTCP) provides non-formal Bible training in the form of interactive classroom lectures and discussions. The program consists of 2-1/2 to 3 years of coursework totaling 520 hours of classes.

As a BTCP partner, Sun Coast offers classes on an ongoing basis. These classes give participants a chance to dig deeper into the Bible with comprehensive Bible training at a reasonable cost of only $25 per course.

We offer this Bible training curriculum to anyone considering church leadership and/or Pastoral ministry through our partnership with Crossing Cultures International.


Classes meet once a week for 3 hours. It usually takes 40 – 60 hours to complete a course.


The BTCP Curriculum is designed to be taken in order. Courses 1-4 are open to anyone! However, when registration is open for Courses 5-10, only those that have completed Courses 1-4 will be eligible.
