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.

Virtually . . . possible!

Fri, 16 Mar 2012 - 12:27 PM CST

The Internet can be one of the single greatest sources of degradation. However, as the Pentecostal Evangel office recently learned, it can also be an effective virtual missionary.

Every week, the Evangel offers online readers the opportunity to win a book and a free six-month subscription to the magazine. Recently, the winner of the contest raised eyebrows - it was a pastor from a sensitive country - a country where missionaries cannot openly go.

"In the Assemblies of God, missionaries often work with local leaders and focus on raising up indigenous churches," says Ken Horn, Pentecostal Evangel editor. "In sensitive countries, sometimes a Christian leader's greatest resource for outside support and inspiration is through the Internet."

Horn says that it's inspiring to realize that a pastor in very difficult ministry circumstances is accessing the Pentecostal Evangel online.  After consulting with AG World Missions, the book, Q&A: Conversations with 50 Inspiring People, is being sent to the pastor along with the subscription to the magazine.

"Churches and individuals across the United States and around the world - even in the most sensitive countries - have come to realize what a spiritually enriching resource the 'Pentecostal Evangel' is," Horn says. "My prayer is that every church would bless and inspire their congregation with a subscription."
