Class Scheduling

Courses will be scheduled primarily on only one full day of the week. Some semesters may require two days per week. Approximately four or five one-week modular courses will also be taken throughout each academic year. This type of schedule permits students to be on campus part-time and at their home church working part-time. The schedule will also permit churches within a commute’s drive to have students that commute to class but then return home for ministry.
