91519873-300x212Over a quarter of a century, ATS has developed academic programs that are right-arrowdesigned for the Christian who is actively serving in the ministry. Quality courses, skilled faculty, and carefully selected texts blend to give each ATS program a completeness in teaching specific ministry skills. Accredited by the Transworld Accrediting Commission, ATS Academics are highly regarded throughout the Christian world.

At ATS we are committed to helping people like you who want to be leaders in spreading the Word in their communities. Dr. Hayes founded the ATS knowing not everyone with the calling couldn’t leave their commitments to go off and study full time.  We know how important it is to allow you to study from home so that you can continue to actively serve in the field. We understand the purpose of your mission and we have strived to maintain the affordable costs, even for those with limited budgets.  In fact, we have not increased our tuition costs substantially since the 1990’s. If you’re looking for a degree from an accredited institution that understands your purpose, look no further.

Andersonville is constantly developing and offering new courses and programs.



Although established in 1981, ATS is a 21st Century seminary, representing students from all 50 states and over 20 foreign countries. Pastors, Bible College and Seminary Faculty and Administration, Christian Counselors, Christian School Teachers, and many other ministry workers have all found a home at Andersonville. No other seminary offers such a wide array of programs that remain centered upon a conservative teaching of all of God’s word. So, if you are looking to Preach with Power and Teach with Wisdom, ATS has a program for you too!
Here’s what some of our students have to say:
I am grateful for the school’s solid teachings. Enrolling in ATS is one of the better decisions that I have made.
Robert Michael Blunk, Lexington, KY
I am working on earning my Master of Divinity degree and have found each course to be of superb quality. Already I have been fortunate to use the knowledge I have acquired in my ministry as a pastor.
Kevin Woolard, Hubert, NC
Although I have been preaching the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ for almost 30 years, I have learned much from you that I can pass on to my people. I pray that God will bless both you and your work as you continue to impact the lives of those whom God has called into His service. Thank you for what this work has done for me. Keep pressing on until Jesus comes
Carroll E. Waddell, Dalzell, SC
Dr. Hayes was the first and only professor I have studied under that challenged me intellectually and spiritually and had me throwing in several “amens” during the lecture as well. It is not possible to get enough of his teaching.
Anthony L. Stepansky, Effingham, IL
