CHET is an institution with a focus on ministerial formation seeking to assist those whose desire is to serve the Lord, the church and their communities. We are located in the geographic center of the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, with many satellites located where sufficient interest and initiative is present to organize study groups. This allows us to serve people and communities throughout Southern California and beyond.
At CHET we believe that theological education and ministerial formation belong to all members of the community of God. Some of our students are pastors, others have just begun their pilgrimage of faith; some are professionals, others have little schooling; some come from historical churches, others belong to new charismatic and Pentecostal movements. Our students, like the educational and administrative staff, are men and women committed to serving Christ.
Our services are intentionally directed towards the Spanish speaking community of God. Generally, this community does not have access to traditional ministerial formation institutions. This is often due to language barriers, high educational costs, long distances, or a myriad of other inconveniences. CHET concurrently prepares men and women whose goal is to earn post-graduate degrees from accredited schools that accept our Bachelor or Ministry Diploma (Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education of California Reg. # 53555769). Our graduates are serving as pastors, as church planters, as counselors, as Sunday school teachers, and in other areas of service to their communities.
If God has called you to equip yourself for His service, or has called you to prepare members of the community of God for ministry, CHET would be honored and pleased to accompany you in your walk so that together we may give honor and glory to He who has called us to collaborate for the expansion of His Kingdom.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Edward Fraijo Delgado, president
