As the Church continues to grow in China, there is a great need for trained pastors who can shepherd young believers. China Graduate School of Theology (CGST) provides opportunities for qualified leaders to continue ministering in China while earning a joint degree from both CGST and the University of Edinburgh. Earning a doctorate will equip this leader to train the next generation of pastors and missionaries, and serve as a rising theologian for the Chinese Church.
