During their time at SOM, each student will be required, encouraged, and sent out to embark on a short term mission trip. We believe this is a very important part of the program, as this will give the student a big-picture, global perspective on the Gospel and how ministry is lived out in the life of the believer. We have heard amazing stories from students who have been sent into the mission field during their time in SOM, and who have been able to apply what they have been studying and growing towards in the mission field in an impactful way. 


This short-term mission trip will be at the expense of the student, although we encourage soliciting outside support from friends and family. We may also have fundraisers that may help to off-set the cost of the trip. The trip can be to any destination (granted they partner with a missions organization or missionary supported by Calvary Houston), and must be during the 2 year program window outside of the class schedule. Calvary Houston is regularly involved in sending out short-term missions groups, therefore there will be ample opportunity for the student to go on one of these trips during this period.

Time Commitment

Students attending SOM are required to invest a very healthy amount of their time into the ministry of Calvary Houston. This insures that the student is not only gathering information, but learning how to practically apply that information into a life of ministry. SOM is a hands on program that encourages significant involvement in the church, the lives of those with whom we come in contact, and the lives of those with whom we will be serving.

Throughout the four semesters, you will be enrolled in advanced, in-depth theological and biblical classes. These classes are designed to take you further in your understanding of theology according to the Scriptures, how to study the Bible, and many other topics important to your development as a student.

These classes include topics like: Hermeneutics, Homiletics, Church History, Survey of Bible Doctrines, Eschatology, Creation Vs. Evolution, Practical Apologetics, the Life of Christ, Biblical Greek, Christian Literature, Bible Survey, and so on.



Along with Monday through Friday classes, students are asked to fully immerse themselves into Calvary Houston, as well as a specific ministry that will be purposefully assigned to each individual. In addition, students will be required to faithfully attend Sunday morning service, Wednesday night service, Sunday Evening prayer service, monthly respective men’s/women’s gatherings, and various special events.

If a student has employment during the time of the program, we recommend that he or she does not attempt to work more than twenty hours per week. Between class workload, ministry involvement, church attendance, and an active life of ministry outside of the church walls, a student can quickly become overwhelmed. Our desire is not to exhaust or burden a student, but for them to live a life of flourishing in the Gospel and serving with passion and energy in the ministry.
