"...we needed an innovative way to train people without sending them away to seminary for years, ... a Seminary totally online format provided the answer we needed.

And never leave your Family, Job, or the People you Serve!
 The Truth is . . .
FACT! Jesus never started a "Seminary or a Bible College!"
FACT! Neither did Paul!
QUESTION: Why did you . . . unless you are copying the world without even thinking is it Scriptural? Is it wise? Or is it sinful?
A Modern College setting - secular or Bible College/Seminary - where Christian young students
> > leave their Parents,
> > leave their Pastors,
> > leave their Elders,
> > leave their Grandparents,
> > leave their Sunday School Teachers,
> > leave their Youth Leaders,
> > any older caring Relatives,
> > leave ALL the people to whom they were accountable . . .
> > go from complete supervision to complete freedom

> > staying out however late they want
> > drinking alcohol if they want
> > experimenting with other drugs if they want
> > giving away their virginity if they want
> > giving up their spiritual calling if they want
> > in an environment of far too many young people . . . and far too few older, wiser people
> > with NOT EVEN ONE PERSON to say: "You really shouldn't do that!"
WITH EVERY TYPICAL CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
> > far too much alcohol
> > far too much illicit sex
> > far too many single girls on Birth Control Pills
> > far too much recreational drug usage
> > far too many pregnancies
> > far too many abortions
> > far too many spiritual callings - aborted as well
> > far too many spiritual, Godly lives made shipwreck
The modern college setting is such an "artificial, worldly modern-construct that is so non-Scriptural in every facet of the word.
The centuries old joke is that
* * College, Definition: "A four year vacation between your parents and your spouse!"
Sadly, this seems just as true for Bible School and seminary.
Scriptural Training for Ministry Teaches us as Follows:
 Jesus started nothing but a Church!
 Paul started nothing but Churches!
 The Apostles Ministered through a local Church!
 No one started a "Bible School"
 Nobody reduced ministerial training to "Books & Theory"
 Nobody removed "on-the-job-experience"
 No study has showed what we do today to be effective in carrying out the Great commission, winning souls, starting New churches, or building local Churches.
Why do we do it? Pure tradition, copying the world, trying to be like the world to gain the praise and recognition from the world.
Online studies solves ALL of these problems, because the person stays right in the "Local Church environment where God called them and they continue to ministry - and implement what they are learning.
A growing number of learners are finding that online learning opens educational opportunities that normally would not be available.
Some AdvantagesGreat Time SaverA couple Graduate Degree Programs I did, the Graduate School was 3.5 hours from my house to inside the Classroom . . . then the obvious 3.5 hours back home . . . All for a two hour class! When weather was raining, snow, foggy, or icy, an hour each way was added
You save all of this time with online Courses.Though not a direct cost, you will not spend time sitting in traffic on a freeway or in a classroom waiting for class to begin.
Anytime LearningMost people today have busy lives. Fitting your schedule to the schedule of a school is not always possible. Perhaps your work or ministry responsibilities keep you from carving out time to attend a class that meets at a scheduled time each week or month.
Online learning allows you to learn according to YOUR schedule, not the seminary’s schedule. That could be in the middle of the night or the first thing in the morning. You decide.
Any Place LearningA traditional classroom schedule can be a problem if a student needs to travel for work or needs to plan a mission trip to another country. Online learning is “anyplace learning.” Wherever you have access to the Internet, you can participate in online learning.
Visiting family in another state or attending a ministry conference during your class? Just log-on where you are. Traveling to another country while your class is in session? As long as you have your laptop or have access to an internet café, you can continue your learning.
Great Cash ValueAttending a traditional class will cost you gasoline, car mileage, and parking expense. Online learning requires only that you own a computer that has access to the Internet, investments most families have already made.
Our Virtual Classroom
After registering for a course, students join others from around the world who have enrolled in the same 10-week online course. Each student progresses at their own pace and time schedule, on the average finishing one Lesson Units per week.
Students are supported by a seminary professor who provides mentoring support daily throughout the term. In addition, students select a local mentor who helps them process and apply what they learn to their local church ministry.
Students can read regular communication from their professor, post questions for the professor, participate in surveys, take exams, read lecture notes, access research materials in the upload assignments, and interact with fellow students from around the world in either a threaded discussion format or a chat room.
To see for yourself how our online classroom works, check out the Demonstration Course.Benefits of Online LearningThe Cambridge Theological Seminary classroom difference doesn’t end there. Consider the following additional benefits:
Cambridge Theological Seminary courses are new, fresh, relevant, and custom-designed for the online environment. We do not make you sit through a streaming video of a traditional seminary class in session.
Weekly learning pathways put students in charge of their own learning, a design appreciated by 21st century adult learners.
A qualified and experienced professor is assigned to every class, providing mentoring support and engaging students as they move along their learning pathway for that week’s lesson.
Students are not left on their own through a correspondence format but join an active, vibrant learning community in every course that motivates, encourages, stimulates, and challenges them.
Students are not forced to log-on to their courses at a certain time of the day. They are free to schedule their learning at a time in the day that is best for them.
Students apply what they learn immediately. Projects and other assignments are almost always completed within the context of the student’s church ministry role.
Since the virtual classroom does not require downloading software to make it operate, students can participate in their course from anywhere in the world as long as they have access to the Internet.
Students benefit from the ministry perspectives of fellow learners from all over the world. A global student body builds a global Kingdom perspective of what God is doing in the world.
Cambridge Theological Seminary online learning design is unique, making seminary education accessible and relevant for you.
