The philosophy of the WIST Extension Division is to provide sound theological education in as many Pentecostal Churches as possible so that lay leadership can be trained to perform their responsibilities efficiently. To accomplish this vision, the Extension School equips students with sound biblical knowledge in the areas of Theology, Bible Surveys, Evangelism, Counselling, Christian Education and Biblical Leadership.
The West Indies School of Theology (WIST) is an independent Christian learning center under the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies (PAWI).
The objective of WIST is to offer sound biblical training so that you may acquire the knowledge and be able to develop the skills necessary to equip you to engage in Ministry. WIST is dedicated to high ethical and moral values in keeping with good Christian principles. Students applying to WIST should understand that enrolment is granted to those who desire to actively support the aims and values of the institution. The WIST handbook spells out
regulations by which it is governed. It is our firm belief, that Scripture demands appropriate response in Christian service.
This service becomes the application of the theological concepts theorized in the classroom. Within the broad confines of the church, the Christian worker relates truth through evangelism, worship, preaching, teaching, counseling and general service to both God and man.
