Honorary Degrees

Doctorate of Theology (DTh)

Doctorate of Divinity (D.D.)

Degree Award Program *




Welcome to TGCM Graduate School of Theology

Potential students have been requesting an honorary degree program that allows our deserving individuals to receive degree
recognition (title degree) based solely on their significant experience, contributions, accomplishments, and life training.
Therefore, we recommend our special Doctorate of Theology honorary award degree program.

Criteria for an Honorary Degree

The honorary special degree recognition program allows a deserving candidate to be awarded an honorary degree based on
the following three accomplishments:

1.    Significant experience, contributions, and accomplishments in the service of God.

2. Educational and degrees earned.

3. Christian character.

The DD and DTh is a recognition or title-only degree.

Degree Selection

Selection for this award is based on a board review and selection process. General guidelines are: degree is generally awarded to those with 10 – 20 years significant Christian service experience and major or unique contributions to the service of our Lord, who are ordained ministers, and who agree with the International True Gospel Christian Ministry (TGCM) Bible College doctrine.

There are a limited number of honorary degrees that will be awarded in each academic year. (Also, a Statement of Belief in TGCM
doctrine is required before this title can be given to any applicant.) Degree can be revoked by the College Board if the person with
the title fails to continue their service and commitment to Christian excellence.)

Consideration is also given to individuals who have at least 7 years significant ministry experience and who also hold a Master’s level degree.
