Grace College Announces New Associate Degree in Ministry Leadership in Partnership with Our Daily Bread Ministries
This fall, Grace College & Seminary will commence an Associate of Science degree in Ministry Leadership in coordination with Christian University GlobalNet (CUGN) from Our Daily Bread Ministries. This brand-new, one-of-a-kind program will blend relevant CUGN certificate courses with applied learning through Grace College. All course content is available online and requires no traditional text books or classroom time. Students will enjoy meaningful interaction with Grace College faculty online through tailored projects, papers and presentations. In as little as two years, students can earn an accredited associate degree from Grace College, ready to launch or redirect their professional ministry.
“We are thrilled to offer this practical and accessible associate degree program in partnership with Christian University GlobalNet,” said Dr. Bill Katip, president of Grace College & Seminary. “We know that students are looking for this – that is why we developed the program. Young people who are considering a career in ministry, people of all ages currently serving who desire more education to propel their ministry, and many others, will find this program extremely useful and beneficial for their future,” he said.
Fourteen distinct Grace College courses totaling 60 credit hours comprise the A.S. in Ministry Leadership. Courses include Christian Leadership Development, Introduction to Old and New Testaments, Foundations of Theology, Church History, Ministry and Management, and more. All courses are offered for the low-price of $499 plus a $9.95 monthly subscription to CUGN, making total degree cost as low as $7,500. Financial aid is also available.
Rick DeHaan, president of Our Daily Bread Ministries, looks forward to the lives changed and ministry impacted through the new partnership with Grace College. “This degree program will serve well both church and lay leaders who wish to further their education. We greatly value the vision Grace College has shown in creatively developing a program that many students want and who will now find affordable and accessible,” he said.
