  1. I have received the books for my ThD. I have started reading them and I have really Thanked my God that He led me to Trinity. I will study all my work first for my personal spiritual growth and then for my ministry that the Lord has called me to. I lecture at a seminary in Kenya. In my evaluation, the material is the very best for anyone who really want to serve the Lord with much effectiveness. Thanks so much Dr. Philip and the Team for accepting the Lord to make you a blessing to many around the world. God bless. Kibii a. Maiyo

  2. What are the registration fees for the ThD and do you not still offer the PhD?

  3. I praise God for this golden opportunity and I will be eagerly waiting to start my study as soon as you send me the course materials. Blessings!

  4. I want to join a doctoral degree in theology. Kindly let me know how to apply and the other requirements thereof.

  5. Sir,

  6. Sirs,

    Let me know the small registration fees is applicable for registration. Also, is there any examination-fee, or fee for issuing Certificate ?


  7. Dear Dr Johnson C Philip,
    thanks a lot for letting me in in Trinity. I already finished the first assignment and I feel great, the level of the texts are awesome, really. You can think that because it is free is easy. Well, you are wrong. You need to read and study a lot and you need lot of discipline because is not an easy thing to study alone.
    God Bless you trinity, I know there is a beautiful reward for you here or in eternity.

  20. I am most exited about my study at trinity. One of the best things that happened to my ministry was my enrolment with trinity. My knowledge of the Christian faith and the Bible suddenly expanded and I know that I am more informed than my colleages.
    Thank you very much. My trouble however is that, it is just impossible for me to send money to trinity whenever I need to.
    I am so greatfull to God for trinity.

  21. Dear Brother in Christ,
    I have forwarded my initial application to get an addmission in youe esteemed seminary. I have applied for M.Th. But after going through your other courses I wish to do my ThD as I have a master degree in Eng. Moreover I have an Associate Certificate in Biblical Studies from India Theological seminary, Brahmavar, India. So I would appreciate you if you could provide me an opportunity to do ThD from your seminary. As I have mentioned in my first mail, Maldives being a 100% Muslim country does not provide any spiritual food. I wish my ambition to study Gods word will surely be satisfied by your esteemed institution. Thanking God Almighty for the opportunity and upholding you to the mighty hands of God…
    I remain with the hope of your earliest reply.
    With prayers,
    Wilson Thomas

    With regards and prayer.
