Residential Int'l

The residential training school is set up in a ten-month format with eight months of academic terms and a ninth month of practical field internship. Each semester begins with a Blitz class taught by a faculty member of theROAR-US.

 Two weeks are given for holiday breaks throughout the course of the year.

Each term, six courses are completed with a progressive ministry focus including two classes a week studying Old or New Testament Bible Survey. A Friday morning extended prayer/worship time is planned, followed by a practical ministry lab (such as evangelism training, English lessons, guitar, computer proficiency, etc.). Friday afternoon, students participate in weekly outreach. Residential ROAR graduates earn an Associate Degree in Practical Theology or Intercultural Studies.
