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.

Assemblies of God Launches Influence Music with New Worship Album

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 - 2:53 PM CST

We Believe

In a partnership with Integrity Music, the Assemblies of God will debuts its new music line, Influence Music, with the release of a new worship album, "We Believe," on Tuesday, August 6, at General Council in Orlando. The first project in a new music initiative - One: A Worship Collective - We Believe features a number of gifted AG worship leaders and songwriters.

We Believe offers churches, worship leaders and individuals an emotionally charged collection of 11 original and rearranged songs which focuses on glorifying Christ through worship, honor and praise.

We Believe was recorded live at the 7:14 Prayer Conference held at Southwestern Assemblies of God University (Waxahachie, Texas) in March 2013.  Its contemporary worship style exudes traditional biblical values and includes a number of songs with more of an acoustic guitar flare, including "Jesus at the Center," "Set My Eyes on You" and "You Are Forever." 

Songwriters and worship leaders featured on the album include Clayton Brooks (The Oaks Fellowship AG, Red Oak, Texas), Ryan Williams (River Valley Church AG, Apple Valley, Minnesota), Kurtis Parks (National Community Church AG, Washington, D.C.), Elmer Cañas Jr. (Calvary Church AG, Irving, Texas) and others.

Other songs on the album include the cover, "We Believe" along with "Like Never Before," "Take Me In," "Come Like the Dawn," "Every Good Gift," "To Honor You," "We Crown You" and "Great I AM."

"The partnership between Influence Resources/Influence Music and Integrity Music to create a product with a powerful message of faith is another step in the journey of creatively resourcing the Church," states Steve Blount, vice president of Publishing, Influence Resources.

To download three of the We Believe albums songs for free, visit the album's website. Also, stories from the artists and acoustic studio versions of several singles are available to watch and listen to on the site.  The full We Believe album will be available to download from iTunes and the My Healthy Church store beginning Tuesday, August 6.
