A Pursuit of Excellence

Free Chapel College is a biblically and experientially-based leadership training program for those who are high school graduates to 26 years old under the leadership of Pastor Jentezen Franklin. We strive to develop students to live a life of excellence to make the greatest eternal impact through the global church.



Free Chapel College is built on 3 pillars:

1. Academics

Free Chapel College currently offers three programs:

Degree Program
Our Degree Program is in partnership with Southeastern University to provide students with a regionally accredited AA, BA, MA degrees. These courses are offered online and through face-to-face instructors. The Degree Program includes 500 hours of hands-on ministry training. 

Ministry Leadership Program
Our ministry leadership program (on campus or digital online format) consists of eight Biblical Studies Courses and eight Leadership Courses that will expand a student’s knowledge of God’s Word and grow in the understanding of biblical leadership. The Certificate Program includes 500 hours of hands-on ministry training.

2. Hands On Training

Ministry Training
Practicums are the ministry and technical training opportunities of FCC. Students will receive hands on training by qualified professionals and skilled staff members of Free Chapel.

Ministry practicums give students an up-close and in-depth exposure to all the intricacies of ministry life. They will provide a detailed understanding of the particular area of ministry they feel called to pursue by practicing the skills that are taught by trained staff and professionals. Students will develop confidence and a greater understanding of ministry leadership.

3. Student Life

While at Free Chapel College, it is our hope that students will develop life-long friendships and memorable experiences. We believe in the power of community and how it helps shape the life of every believer throughout their journey, which is why our staff strives to foster an atmosphere of community in every setting.

Student Life is composed of outreach opportunities, chapels, intramurals, small groups, mentorship, and monthly student life events.

Who We Are

At Free Chapel College, we focus on life skills and ministry training that transcends vocation and career choices. In addition to the specific skills students learn in their hands-on practicums, students also develop the ability to communicate, develop a growth mindset, solve complex problems and issues, and continuously adapt and grow in collaborative environments.
Students will also develop a strong foundation of biblical understanding and application that they apply in all other aspects of campus life—which includes their academic courses, their ministry practicums, and their campus roles. 
Our leadership training serves to develop and model a mindset that instils our core values of excellence, servant leadership, a success mindset, and eternal significance— with a heavy emphasis on interpersonal and professional communication skills. 
Our campus is collaborative in nature and students engage in both academic and service-focused projects and campus involvement to help build ministries and people. Every faculty and staff member is encouraged and empowered to positively impact students through one-on-one mentoring and academic accountability.
