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.

Podcasting

What is a podcast?

A podcast is a digital media file (usually an audio file but sometimes a video file) which is distributed over the Internet to everyone who has subscribed to that podcast "feed." Think of a podcast as similar to a radio program that is sent to you automatically each week, or however often the podcaster (the podcast author) creates a new episode.

Do I need special hardware?

Nearly every computer comes configured to play audio or video files. You can also load those files onto a portable music players like iPods (from which the term "podcast" is derived). But other portable music players can also be used.

Do I need special software?

Yes. Your best experience with podcasts is found when using an application designed to automatically download and categorize the various podcasts to which you are subscribed. There are several free programs you can use. iTunes is the most commonly used program of this type, Juice is another well known program. Both are available for Macintosh and PC computers.
