Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) now has 13 active online extension sites offering classes across the nation.

Eddie Davis, vice president of enrollment and retention, said, "SAGU has aggressively embraced the strategy of extension sites in order to provide an accessible education to potential students who do not fit the mold of a traditional on-campus or online student."

SAGU extension sites present the unique ability to partner with churches around the country that value accredited college level training as well as practical hands-on ministry experience. In many cases, SAGU's online extension sites allow students to remain close to home and attend college at a reduced cost.

Currently, SAGU is operating 13 online extension sites across the country including: Bethesda Community Church in Ft. Worth, Texas; Christ Church in Ft. Worth, Texas; Griffin First Assembly in Griffin, GA; Impact Now, Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas; Life Church in Germantown, WI; Visalia First Assembly in Visalia, CA; Life Church in Roscoe, IL; as well as six additional locations in Kansas, Pennsylvania, Missouri, California, and Texas. New sites are planned to open in the Spring and Fall of 2015.

Davis continued, "Students are trained not only by highly esteemed, academically qualified SAGU faculty, but also by local church leaders and influencers in the field. The dynamic of extension sites creates an active and exciting learning experience for our students."

Extension sites currently offer an AA in Bible degree or a BA in Church Leadership. For more information about SAGU extension sites, email som@sagu.edu.

Women's Ministries stamp collecting aids libraries

Thu, 04 Dec 2003 - 12:29 PM CST

For more than four decades, Women's Ministries groups around the country have been collecting used postage stamps, donating more than $60,000 from their resale to missions. This ongoing project, called The Library Fund, serves a twofold purpose: providing funds for A/G Bible schools and a nontraditional ministry opportunity for the many retired missionaries and shut-ins who help prepare stamps for sale. The effort began in 1962.

Each year the national Women's Ministries Department receives more than a thousand packages of stamps in varying shapes and sizes. "The Library Fund is a project that appeals to many Women's Ministries groups because it does not require a large amount of finances or fund raising," says Karlene Gannon, office and finance/projects coordinator for the national Women's Ministries Department. "The whole church can be involved in this recycling project."

Women's Ministries groups coordinate the collection, preparation and shipment of the canceled postage stamps to the national Women's Ministries Department for marketing. Some church groups also ask local utility companies and businesses to save envelopes. Postage stamps that are placed lower on the envelope are easier to sell, and large commemorative stamps are more valuable. The 2002 grants totaled $1,700 and benefited nine Bible schools from each of the six Assemblies of God World Missions regions.

"The Women's Ministries and all those who have taken time to collect the used stamps have made it possible for us to purchase much-needed books for our library here at Joy Bible Institute," says Phil Rojak, U.S. A/G missionary in Vanuatu. "Like most Bible schools, our school's funds are at a premium, and often there are not enough funds left over to adequately stock our library. The Library Fund has helped us to better equip our students."
