Each licensed professional must renew their license each year and obtain 10 hours of professional training in their respective fields of expertise. At least 3 hours of the training must be in professional ethics. Anyone desiring to be licensed by Rhema must contact the school for an application. We do accept transcripts from other bible institutes, schools or seminaries but we will not license without an official transcript, and you must meet our professional and ethical codes of conduct. Renewal fee is $125.00


There is a one time $40 non-refundable registration fee and monthly tuition is $50 per month each calendar school year. Students are also required to pay for the cost of graduation cap and gown should they choose to participate in the graduation ceremony.
