This year we’re introducing new online ministry degrees that meet the needs of busy students who want to pursue a graduate degree.

There are four tracks to choose from, giving you the option to focus on the kind of training that will make you the most effective in your local ministry.



Interpreting Scripture


An introduction to valid methodology in determining the original meaning of biblical texts and applying their modern significance. Special attention is given to the structure and underlying presuppositions of the original text and the problem of prior understanding on the part of the interpreter. Building upon the foundation of sound hermeneutical and exegetical principles, the student will gain skill in doing exegesis through observation of good exegetical models and through practice in personally applying the principles to selected texts. The examples and exercises in this course are based upon the English Bible, but are designed to prepare the student for effective biblical study, whether in translation or in the original languages.

Learning and Living OT History


A study of the Old Testament books of Genesis through Esther with an emphasis on their content, integrity, and theology within their historical, cultural, and, geographical backgrounds. The biblical meaning will also be related to contemporary Christian living, thinking and ministry.

Becoming a Servant Leader


A core course designed to help students gain an accurate knowledge of themselves in how they have been shaped and prepared by God for an optimal role in furthering His purposes. Through the use of a variety of inventories, life mapping, personal reflection, interviews, and direction from the instructor, students will be assisted in assessing how their gifting, natural abilities, experience, personality and passion contribute to their development in leadership. (Additional Course Fee)

God’s People


A thoughtful overview of Christian theology in the areas of soteriology, pneumatology, ecclesiology, and eschatology. The student will be encouraged to develop his or her theological grid and gain exposure to theological terminology, scriptural support for doctrines, theologians and historical developments which have played a major role in Christian theology. Student will develop their own doctrinal statement reflecting their understanding of biblical teaching in each area of Christian theology.
