ELST courses are written by faith-based service-specific instructional volunteers using college, secondary schools, baccalaureate, advanced degree-granting institutions, business and professional development curriculums or service-learning leadership field study practicums. Essential to the effective creation and implementation of the confirmation requirements are both established and emerging clergy services excellence standards. State and National standards strengthen the reverence of the curriculums for faith-based and secular workplace to facilitate the student’s transition from school to ministry outreach services, business development, and provide a basis for our educators to meet clearly defined clergy gifts expectations.

Accreditation is a form of quality assurance by which the school or college’s operations are examined by a third party in light of a list of standards proposed by the third party. In conjunction with these various guidelines to refine, strengthen, coordinate, and regulate the effective delivery of ELST education; and in order to be in line with ministerial ethical standards, the accountability of the instructors and study curriculums, we are regulated by the Lifelong Learning Unlimited Association for Community Education & Credits CARB Board. (Credits Accountability Review Board), Texas Workforce Commission Career Schools & Colleges, and the Texas State Regulatory Licensing Department which combined oversees the faith-based study efforts of ELST.

 We are a private Bible Studies and Leadership Credentialing School of Ministry and not a theological College or Institute; however, our study curriculums are Accredited by the Association of Independent Christian Colleges & Seminaries.  Field Study, Standardized Bible and Coursework Quizzes, Final Study Exam, Course and Instructor Post-Study Evaluations are conducted for clergy service excellence and the continuance of ELST “sound” study achievement in the areas of private education. We are a 501c3 non-profit, faith-based, non-governmental mandated accreditation organization, therefore we are exempt from any accrediting commission or accrediting organization/association requirements.
