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.

Glen D. Cole, the well-known and highly respected Assemblies of God minister who built Capital Christian Center (AG) in Sacramento, California, into a megachurch, passed away Tuesday of an apparent heart attack. He was 78.

Cole, an avid golfer and in apparent good health, was found unresponsive in his car in the parking lot of Trinity Life Center (AG) in Sacramento. He could not be revived. Cole had accepted the pastorate of Trinity Life Center in 2008 and had guided its growth from about 150 to a congregation of more than 1,100.

A former member of the AG Executive Presbytery (1985-95) and the former Northern California-Nevada District Superintendent (1997-2004), Cole was regarded as a compassionate leader and a visionary who relied upon God's Word to form his opinions and direction in life.

"Brother Cole was a great champion of the gospel and a great promoter of missions," said AG General Superintendent George O. Wood in a written statement. "Whatever he put his hand to prospered. He was a good friend to me, always caring and supportive."

A graduate of Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, Cole began his ministry at Bethel Temple in Dayton, Ohio, in 1956. He was ordained by the Ohio District in 1959. He would go on to pastor churches in Marion, Ohio; Maple Valley, Washington; Seattle, Washington; and Olympia, Washington; before accepting the pastorate of Capital Christian Center (then known as Bethel Temple) in Sacramento in 1978, growing the church to about 5,000. He retired in 1995, becoming the Northern California-Nevada District superintendent from 1997-2004. In 2004, he joined his son, Rick, as the executive pastor at Capital Christian Center until 2006. He responded to the request to pastor again in 2008 as senior pastor of Trinity Life Center.

Cole is survived by his wife of 58 years, Mary Ann; sons Randy (Joanne) and Rick (Cathy); and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Monday, February 20, in the Capital Christian Center auditorium, 9470 Micron Ave., Sacramento. The service will also be live-streamed from the Capital Christian Center website.
