MyFiladelfia is not a private higher education institution and does not confer national qualifications. MINTS International Seminary (www.mints.edu) – a Florida Department of Education (www.fldoe.org/cie) registered seminary confers qualifications. Above mentioned courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations. Various regionally or nationally accredited Christian Universities, colleges and seminaries and accept transfer students from our institution. Transferability of credits earned at MyFiladelfia Institute via MINTS.edu and transferred to another school is at the discretion of the receiving institution’s RPL policy. MyFiladelfia Institute (and MINTS.edu) does not promise or find employment.  It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the ministry/institution they are applying at recognises the training.

We seek to provide a sound Scriptural standing from which our students may fulfil their divine purpose and call. MyFiladelfia does not prepare students for a future in Psychological counselling. Please contact the HPCSA in this regard. MyFiladelfia prepares persons for ministry possibilities. Although courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the ministry/institution where they are applying at recognises matters of accreditation and registration. MyFiladelfia has an articulation agreement in place with a South African DHET registered seminary. Please contact us for more details. The level 3B program presently leads to a MINTS BATS. MyFiladelfia does have provisional accreditation with Services SETA as a provider; accreditation number: 12667.
