NETS recognises that many people, who are able and called by God to be Christian leaders, are not able to participate in full-time courses on a Windhoek campus. Therefore, our distance programme is an essential part of our mission to see people equipped for ministry. These programmes can be completed at one of our many learning centres around the country, and, in certain cases, even from home.
NETS Distance Department offers the following programmes:
