With this agreement, Salvation Army ministers who have completed their studies at the Cadet School of Argentina will be able to continue their ministerial training through higher academic degrees offered by NTS Southern Cone.
Alex Nesterenko, territorial chief of the Eastern Territory of South America of the Salvation Army, and Jorge L. Julca, rector of NTS Southern Cone, signed this strategic alliance between both institutions.
"It brings me joy to be part of this historical moment in the life of the Nazarene Theological Seminary of the South Cone," Julca said. “For NTS of the Southern Cone, this strategic alliance will consolidate our relations with the Salvation Army, enrich our educational experience, enhance the strengths of both parties, and expand our service to the Kingdom of God.”

Through this agreement, fraternal relations will be strengthened and educational, technological, and staff resources will be enhanced in favor of excellent theological education in this area of the world.
