Equipping students to grow spiritually, think creatively, teach biblically and serve contextually.

Our Values


We are committed to making our education affordable by automatically granting a 75% discount off the tuition rates of our sister school in the United States. In addition, most students receive significant scholarships that make our tuition rates among the most affordable in Asia.


All of our degree programs are part-time, consisting of a combination of online learning with condensed face-to-face modules in selected cities throughout Asia. Without a residency requirement, students already in ministry are able to earn their master’s degree without leaving their ministries or, in many cases, their home countries.

Global Perspective

ABTS offers U.S.-accredited degrees through Cornerstone University located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States of America. At the same time, ABTS is firmly planted in Southeast Asia with our office in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This combination of East Meets West, with professors from around the world, brings a truly global perspective to the classroom.


One hallmark of ABTS classes is relevance. Each class is specially tuned to both the cultural and ministerial needs of the local context. Classes at ABTS are never merely a theoretical exercise but integrate theory and practice in ways that are relevant to the real-life situations of our students.
