Praying hands on Bible - studying for diploma

Earn Your Diploma with YTI—Start Where You Are, Go Where You Dream

The YTI Diploma program delivers a basic, yet thorough, foundation for ministry. The Diploma serves as a comprehensive introduction to essential areas of biblical knowledge and theological understanding. Specific areas of study geared to personal interests and gifting offer hands-on experience in Christian life and leadership. Students from any educational background can thrive in the Diploma program. YTI invites applicants to grow and deepen their faith through intensive classes, community involvement, and mentorship in ministry. We equip students to serve in their local churches, to take their faith into the world of business, and to share agape love in the far reaches of the globe. Ultimately, this is a preparation of mind, heart, and soul to serve — the development of one’s spiritual life through education and practical training.

Change the world through mindfulness, truth, and love. Begin with a Diploma and see where God takes you.

10 classes are required for graduation including three core courses and seven courses in an area of the student’s choice. View areas of study below.
