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.

Nudity increases on broadcast networks

Wed, 09 Jan 2013 - 2:49 PM CST

A Parents Television Council study has found a huge increase in the number of incidents of full nudity on broadcast networks during the 2011-12 season compared to the year before. A PTC analysis discovered a 407 percent increase in full-frontal nudity.

During the 2011-12 season, 76 incidents of full nudity occurred on 37 shows, compared to 15 cases on 14 programs a year earlier. Only five of the shows carried an "S" descriptor alerting parents to explicit adult content.

"Broadcasters are unashamedly and without warning, exposing families and children to graphic images," states Candy Tolbert, Assemblies of God Girls Ministries director. "So, one must wonder what the motivation is?"

The research also showed a trend in how the networks treat the nudity. In most cases in 2010-12, black bars hid body parts. But in the recently concluded season, three-fourths of the images were blurred or pixilated.

"We have seen a concerted effort on the part of the networks to constantly push the outer limit of what may be considered appropriate for the broadcast medium," says PTC President Tim Winter. "They are aggressively pursuing a dangerous agenda to completely obliterate any remaining television taboos."

More than half - 35 - of the 64 occurrences of frontal nudity were on NBC. ABC had the second most with 17.
