All programs of study are designed for ministers and laity, full-time, bi-professional, or otherwise. Furthermore, all study experiences are intended to enable the student to relate to them in the environment in which the Lord has placed them.
We believe that good education is of great value in the Church today.
We affirm that if this value is to be appropriated for most Christian servants, it must be made available to them through external delivery systems. We believe that today’s Christian leaders need training in the ministry, not merely for the ministry. Accordingly, we insist that one’s study be completed within the actual laboratory of ministry sphere. It makes good sense to pay attention to the entire person, including his or her environment, when the person is involved in a formal educative process.
We focus on the development of the entire range of learning domains. This means that the best of accepted learning theory is built into the curricula. Cognitive (intellectual), affective (theological), and conative (usable) learning activities are completed by students.
