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.

AG and COGIC Leaders Gather in Historic Meeting

This week Assemblies of God executive leadership hosted the executive leadership of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) at the AG national office in Springfield, Missouri. The historic meeting marks the first time the full leadership of these Pentecostal movements — two of the largest in the U.S. — have gathered specifically to dialogue together.

Dr. George O. Wood, general superintendent of the Assemblies of God, expressed his great pleasure in the COGIC acceptance of the invitation. He also warmly welcomed the executive leadership as well as local COGIC leaders and members to the Tuesday chapel service held at the national office each week. 

During the chapel service, Wood explained that the Assemblies of God and COGIC were children of the Azusa Street revival — citing that it was COGIC's Presiding Bishop C. H. Mason who personally attended the first General Council in 1914 and blessed the Assemblies of God as it was being formed. Wood reflected sorrowfully on the separation that occurred because of the racial culture at that time in America, when culture shaped the church into racial division rather than the Bible. The coming together of COGIC and AG leadership in a historic-time dialogue represents another step in the healing of a rift that occurred long ago.

Current COGIC Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake Sr., who also pastors the 24,000-member West Angeles COGIC in Los Angeles, then addressed the chapel attendees. He shared a brief but passionate message based on Acts, encouraging listeners to follow Paul's example in thanking God during and after life's storms.

In addition to Bishop Blake, other top COGIC leadership who came from across the country for the meetings included:  First Assistant Presiding Bishop Philip A. Brooks, Second Assistant Presiding Bishop Jerry W. Macklin, Bishop J. Drew Sheard (general board member), Financial Secretary Frank Anthone White, General Secretary Joel Harley Lyles Jr., Missions President Carlis L. Moody, Chairman of Auxiliaries in Ministry Lindwood Dillard Jr., and Chief Operation Officer James W. Smith.

"This is a wonderful day," Wood said, prior to entering additional meetings with the COGIC leadership. "Meeting with our like-minded brothers from the Church of God in Christ is something we and the leadership of COGIC have longed to do for years, and now it has finally happened!"
