You have received God's calling?
We are here to help with your ordination, training and ministerial needs.

It's a blessing opportunity.

The site Footsteps Of Jesus Seminary & Bible Academy is God's work to let us know if there a way that we can help you! We entered the ministry in 1987, as a small researcher group in Hull, Quebec. With the Lord’s help we have honed that ministry to a better use of his spiritual gifts and through the years we became a Independent United Baptist and an Independent United Methodist Episcopal Church, and we understand very well of this calling.

Eric Michel Ministries International is a interdenominational Community Chaplaincy comprised of people who worship Christ and want to spread is words in our country and the world. We believe in the Bible and we strive to live out our faith together.

 chaplaincy reflects diverse gathering of people from all stages of life and spiritual development. We are not committed to just one race, age group, or demographic; we want to reach every person with the Gospel. The Gospel is the good news that Jesus lived and died to give us life forever.

Eric Michel Ministries International chaplaincy & Seminary is a community that offers many opportunities for people to grow in their relationship with Christ since 2010. We are a chaplaincy that loves people and wants to feed them from God's Word, challenge them, and invite them to use
heir gifts to serve Christ with us.

Eric Michel Ministries International under Research, Theology and Teaching Ministry and New Hope Ministry and Missions provide an online Christian Study for future ministers in the Christian Faith specializing and fully accredited graduate programs in Theology. It is an online studies programs or small classes programs, it attracts students around the world who want to be serving as minister in our EMMI family of Chaplains. If you have a desire to learn our
traditions we invites you to join us

We offer a course of education leading to ordination as a Christian minister. We are a religious organization with the right to ordain ministers and thus qualify them as ordained ministers:

To officiate at weddings, baptisms, funerals, Holy Communion, and Worship Ceremonies. Men and women who complete the course and meet all the requirements upon their request, may be ordained in the context of a worship with hand imposition in front of witnesses. We also train lay people for ministry and lay who just want to learn more about our Christian faith via the Bible Academy.


Our mission at Footsteps of Jesus and Bible Academy is to raise up leaders who will minister to all nations. Our programs have the highest curriculum standards within the framework of Spirit-anointed authority. We prepare Christian leaders for Christian service.

All degrees at the Seminary are earned degrees. This is achieved by mandatory courses work that must be completed.

To each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says:

“When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.”

He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe. So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,  to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.~Ephesians 4

Our Accreditation is done by  a private, voluntary, non-governmental peer-review process that reviews the educational quality of an institution or program.
The accreditation is the primary means of assuring educational quality. Accreditation status confirms that an institution has voluntarily undergone a comprehensive self-study and peer examination that demonstrates the institution meets standards of accreditation

We prepare our students for secular work or denominational service. We will seek to provide a sound theological standing from which our students may fulfill their divine purpose and calling.

Disclaimer Statement
Our courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations. Various regionally or nationally accredited
Christian Universities, colleges and seminaries throughout the world may accept credits and degrees from
