Welcome to Evangelical School of Theology

Evangelical School of Theology (EST) in Wroclaw, Poland is an interdenominational school of theology that has been in existence since 1990 (when it began as Biblical Theological Seminary). EST is a non-public, accredited school operating pursuant to the legal decision of the Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education in October 2006. The goal of EST is to strengthen the Evangelical movement in Poland by equipping Christians for effective ministry. In this context, we seek to train and educate men and women who will serve their churches, fellowships and organizations and who desire to be an influence for Christ in their neighborhoods, communities and cities.

In September 2009, EST opened an Educational Center to become a multi-faceted school that provides programs and courses designed to equip people who are already in ministry, to attract people for broader theological studies, to train Christian leaders, to be involved in theological research and to create evangelical culture/ethos within Polish society. In 2014, the EST Educational Center was officially recognized and offers an accredited B.A. program as well as the following: Academy of Third Age (for seniors), and Open Theological Academy (for churches) that includes the School of Leaders, School of Apologetics, and School of Biblical Languages. There are also other projects and activities, i.e. Protestant Festival, Days of Reformation Series, Week of Prayer for Unity of Christians plus special conferences, lectures, workshops, and concerts.

Our ministry is possible because of cooperation with many partners in the United States, Canada, Western Europe and Poland. Without their support, many of our plans would never come true. We hope that you will take a few minutes to visit our website and find out more about the staff, students, graduates, programs, and activities of the EST EC.

Please pray for this ministry!

Thank you,

Dr. Wojciech Szczerba Rector
