Research, Theology and Teaching Ministry of Eric Michel Ministries International

Founded in 2015 our Seminary " Footsteps of Jesus" for future ministers in the Christian Faith specializing in fully accredited graduate programs in Theology. The Seminary is the next step of RTTM started in 1987 where the Bible was scrutinized by our team on the Quest for Jesus. It is an online studies program or small classes program, it attracts students around the world who want to be serving as ministers in our EMMI family of Chaplains. If you have the desire to learn our traditions we invite you to join us. We offer a course of education leading to ordination as a Christian minister.

We are a legally established 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. Upon their request men and women who complete the course and meet all the requirements, upon their request, will be ordained in the context of worship with hand imposition in front of witnesses.

Our accreditation is private, voluntary, and non-governmental.

We prepare students to work for Eric Michel Ministries International, we also qualify students for other churches. EMMI Institutions have formal legal authorization to enrol students or issue degrees, but in some jurisdictions,  legal authorization to operate is not the same as Government educational accreditation.

Footsteps of Jesus Seminary is a distance learning, the accredited theological school operated by Eric Michel Ministries International. Students are prepared for ministerial positions and other related careers in Christian Theology. EMMI operates the Seminary FoJ and is a non-profit organization.

All our courses are by

“Implementing Team Impact Christian University Curriculum”       

and accredited by Theological Accreditation International (TAI) or by the World-Wide Accreditation Commission of Christian Educational Institutions.  Both are non-governmental accreditation, extended exclusively to private, Christian institutions upon inspection and approval of their programs, operations, and integrity. WWAC is a worldwide accreditation that honours the separation of church and state and extends beyond national boundaries. Its standards and expectations measure compliance with Scriptural principles as applied to education. In some countries accreditation of universities and seminaries is a voluntary process with accreditation granted by private, non-governmental agencies. Governmental agencies do not provide theological or ministry accreditation.

Government-recognized accreditation is not necessary for the religious vocations in which we are equipping our students and people working in ministry positions do not need a government-accredited degree. We prepare our students for ministry work as a minister or lay services at Eric Michel Ministries International. We will seek to provide a sound theological standing from which our students fulfill their divine calling.

Our courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations.

Various regionally or nationally accredited Christian Universities, colleges and seminaries may accept credits and degrees from Footsteps of Jesus Seminary.

Our programs are created for ordination, courses that can suit the needs of anyone who wishes to study Christianity and prepare for a variety of professional ministries. It provides extensive knowledge in the areas of Christianity theology and history, as well as some training in ministerial ethics, pastoral care and discipleship. Serving as a professional chaplain will require additional courses in Clinical Pastoral Education.

Our Headquarters are in Ottawa, Ontario Canada and to this effect:
