Online / Low Residency
Through our Distributed Learning (DL) program, you can complete most M.A., M.Div., and D.Min degrees through online courses with short courses on campus once or twice per year.
An Affordable Education
Thanks to our generous donors, we’re able to offer all qualified, newly admitted M.A. and M.Div. students a scholarship covering 100 percent of tuition. When you graduate, you shouldn’t be constrained in the kind of roles you can take on by debt. You should be free to focus your time and full attention on ministry in whatever context you are called to serve.
