English-language versions of the Bible can fail to completely capture intention of the Word. You can only truly understand God’s beautiful message of love and redemption by studying the languages in which it was originally written.

You’ll develop a basic understanding of Greek and Hebrew allowing you to grow and evolve as a teacher.
By attending Codrington, you are placed in a fellowship of trained, supportive religious friends with a variety of unique gifts and talents. At some point in your religious journey, you may face a crisis or just a period where you are constantly searching for answers.

Many students have given praise and gratitude for having met their counterparts at College as they have led to rich and highly rewarding teachings, experiences and ventures.
