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.

This week in AG history -- April 24, 1960

Mon, 23 Apr 2012 - 1:33 PM CST

Charlie Lee (1924-2003), a talented young Navajo artist, won widespread recognition and numerous awards for his paintings and sketches of life on the reservation. Despite his success, Lee felt dissatisfied with his life. In the fall of 1947, an Apache school friend invited him to visit an Assemblies of God church at the San Carlos Reservation in Arizona, where he found new life and accepted Christ on New Year's Day, 1948.
 
Feeling called to the ministry, Lee enrolled at Central Bible Institute (now Central Bible College). He graduated in 1951 and traveled extensively as an evangelist among Native Americans. In 1953, Lee and his wife, Coralie, returned to his home state of New Mexico and pioneered Mesa View Assembly of God in Shiprock. He became one of the best-known Native American pastors within the Assemblies of God. His congregation in Shiprock, in 1976, became the first Native American church on a federally recognized reservation to make the transition from being a supported mission to a fully indigenous, self-supporting, General Council affiliated church.
 
Lee's testimony was published in the April 24, 1960, issue of the Pentecostal Evangel.
 
Read "Navajo Artist Builds a Church for His People," by Ruth Lyon, on pages 8 and 9 of the April 24, 1960, issue of the Pentecostal Evangel.
