Christian Living Degrees (Available August 1, 2018) 

The Christian Living Degree is designed for those who want general Christian Studies in a variety of disciplines. Yet this degree will conform to accredited degree standards for Associate and Bachelor Degrees.

This Christian study is designed to give you optimum choice in your interests. Students have been asking for more flexibility in crafting a study program. This flexibility is perfect for bi-vocational leaders (Christian leaders who have multi-calls). They are called to serve in two pursuits. One may be called into ministry, but may also be called to serve the Lord in one or more of the following callings (to name a few):

  • Home Maker
  • Homeschool Parent
  • Stay-at-home Mom or Dad
  • Retired Men and Women
  • Business Executive
  • Teacher
  • Factory Technician
  • Farmer
  • Nurse
  • Homeschooled Teens (many could use this Program in the High School years)

The Christian Living Degrees give you the credibility of an official degree but speak directly to your life situation.
