School Overview

Learn through 20 Modules

The online missionary training school is broken up into 20 modules, each covering a different topic such as evangelism, church planting movements, spiritual warfare, orality/storytelling, etc.

  • You can see an brief description of each module by looking at the full curriculum.
  • Each module includes several videos and a few Bible studies relevant to the topic.
  • There are also articles and at least one book (some have two) to read for each module. You will read a total of 23 books throughout the entire program.
  • Students will record their responses in the online system.

Work at Your Own Pace

Students work at their own pace and are encouraged to work through each module in chronological order.

  • A part-time student working at a normal, average pace will complete one module each month and complete the whole program in about a year and a half.
  • A full-time student could complete the whole program in six months.

We encourage students to complete each module within one to two months.

Connect with A Facilitator

Each student will be assigned a Facilitator to check in with students via email and Skype to see how they are progressing and provide coaching along the way.

Earn a Degree

Non-Degree

Non-degree seeking students must complete all short answer responses to videos and submit a one page response paper on the book or books for each module. All non-degree students must also complete and submit the answers to “100 Questions” for each book in each module. These are open book exams, so students can use their books to answer the multiple choice questions.

Degree

Degree seeking students must complete all short answer responses to videos and submit a three to eight page paper response for each module. All degree students must also complete and submit the answers to “100 Questions” for each book in each module. These are open book exams, so students can use their books to answer the multiple choice questions.

Both non-degree and degree students must complete 12-15 ministry hours per module locally and submit a report concerning their time spent in cross-cultural ministry. Ministry hours can be serving in your local church, community, schools, outreach events, home groups, or time investing in getting to know people from another culture to develop relationships. These hours can be a combination of time with individuals or groups, informal and formal. For example, a student could join a group at church that speaks a different language, participate in outreach events, visit local stores and eateries from other cultures and engage in conversations with the staff or patrons to build relationships, tutor students from other cultures, etc.
