Non-Degree SEC Program

Are you a Christian who is not currently interested in a degree, but would like to experience immersion in a spiritually rich environment? EBIC’s new Spiritual Enrichment Certificate (SEC) program may be exactly what you need! The SEC program has been developed to meet the growing need of people who are not sure what to do next, but KNOW they would like to grow closer to the Lord. As part of the SEC program you will:

  • Increase your knowledge of the Bible
  • Grow your personal spiritual formation
  • Strengthen your personal relationship with God
  • Develop practical skills to share the Gospel and minister to others
  • Learn to engage in prayer and Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual Enrichment

The non-degree SEC program places the Bible as it’s primary concentration. You will have an opportunity to select from a variety of Bible courses. If the courses are not taken for credit, you will receive a pass/fail grade so you can focus more on your spiritual growth instead of what grade you will receive. Practical experience is an important element of your time at EBIC, please see below for more information on ministry opportunities that are part of the SEC program.

Practical Experience

Elim is more than an academic institution. It imparts a heart for ministry and provides students with in-depth practical experience. Students experience hands-on ministry in the local community through their Student Ministry. They also participate in a three-week internship in New York City, providing them intense opportunities to grow and learn in an urban ministry environment.


Because this is a non-degree granting program, federal and state financial aid is not available. For this reason, this program has been priced at a fraction of our degree granting programs to make it as affordable as possible. The flat rate for attendance as an SEC student is $8000 per year which includes tuition, fees, room and board (not books and supplies).
