A Message From The National Director

National Director

Welcome to Global University of Springfield, Missouri and thank you for your interest in studying here.

Global University has been providing fully accredited ministerial degree programs for over thirty years. Global University courses are accepted by the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada for ministerial credentials.

Global University is a worldwide distance education provider for ministry preparation to over 180 countries around the world in 152 languages. Global is accredited with the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association. This body accredits institutions like the University of Chicago, Ohio State University, Moody Bible Institute and United Theological Seminary.

A unique aspect of our program is the emphasis on applied learning and ministry through our Service Learning Requirement (SLR). This requirement allows learners to move more rapidly from theory to practical application of what they are learning. In other words, learners benefit from the integration of academic rigor with practical application throughout their studies.

Global University offers courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels of study. The undergraduate school offers certificates, diplomas and degrees in Bible and Theology. Our Graduate School of Theology offers masters of arts with emphasis in Biblical Studies, New Testament, Ministerial Studies, Education, Intercultural Studies and Leadership and a Master of Divinity.

Recently Global has introduced a Doctor of Ministry program designed to serve those in active ministry who cannot attend a traditional seminary. Students will receive academic yet practical training in Bible and Theology from a Pentecostal perspective enabling them to serve with knowledge and the anointing of the Holy Spirit to fulfill their calling to church-based ministry. The program requires as little as 30 credits beyond a BA plus an MA or MDiv degree. Areas of study include Core subjects (9 credits), Specialization (12 credits) and Project (9 credits).

When you enroll and study with Global University, you will not be studying alone. Instead you will join students studying literally in every time zone of the world.

Global operates through a worldwide network of national offices serving over 300,000 students. We are committed to equipping people for service in churches, schools, and other ministries. As you study, rest assured our extensive University stands ready to assist you in any way we can.

We trust that you will find your studies with us to be academically and spiritually rewarding.
