King's Evangelical Divinity School

King's Evangelical Divinity School (formerly the Midlands Bible College and Midlands Bible College and Divinity School) is a nondenominational institution providing innovative studies by open and distance learning. Working in partnership with the University of Chester, England, the school specialises in Hermeneutics (biblical interpretation).



The School was founded in 1990, by Revd Christopher B. Smith. Initially the focus was on classroom-based teaching at the college premises in Wolverhampton, near Birmingham, England, but has since shifted to focus entirely upon e-learning. In 2008 the name of the college was changed from Midlands Bible College and Divinity School to reflect its seminary-level studies and a Master of Arts programme in Theology.


The current principal, is the Revd. Dr. Calvin Smith BA MEd PhD. He is assisted by a number of faculty, including:
