Our desire is to be a low-cost seminary that offers the ministry and theological tools required to serve the church not only here in the USA but also throughout the world. Our campuses have the freedom to support their local needs while still meeting our minimum standards of educational expectations and standards. 

As a seminary, we cherish educational lessons and structure and offer courses through the independent study method that we call the Oxford Method, but we also recognize that many clergies have life experience that can be turned into earned credits; we call this the Clergy Life Experience Portfolio Program (CLEPP). We also offer Professional Ministry Certification Programs and Continuing Education Units.
