About the Organiser:
Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST) is a theological institution that seeks to help Christians and the Church reflect theologically and holistically on what is going on in the world.

It offers a thorough and systematic study programme for lay people to help them live out their Christian faith in their vocations and be more effective in serving God, emphasising not only the development of biblical and theological knowledge, but also the acquisition of analytical, critical and integrative skills in interpreting Scriptures.
