SPRINGFIELD, Missouri — Global University, an accredited distance education university of the Assemblies of God, and Logos Bible Software Español, the leading provider of multilingual tools and resources for Bible study, announced the launch of the Colección Digital Berea, an impressive educational resource designed to train Hispanic ministers from a Pentecostal perspective.
"We are very pleased to be working in ministry together with Logos Bible Software," says Dr. Gary L. Seevers, Jr., President of Global University. "I believe that every pastor, leader and church volunteer will receive a superior educational experience as a result of studying our curriculum with this modern tool.”
Through this partnership, all three levels of the Ministerial Studies program offered by the Berean Bible School - Certificate, License and Ordination - converge into one collection within the robust Logos digital Bible study library. The program covers a total of 27 specialized courses. These courses address current pastoral areas of interest based on the principles of the Pentecostal tradition. The program includes: Introduction to Pentecostal Doctrine, History, Missions and Government of the Assemblies of God, Prayer and Worship, Effective Leadership, Preaching in the Modern World, and Pastoral Ministry, among the most notorious. This curriculum was written by respected Spirit-filled scholars. More than a third of the Assemblies of God ministers have used these courses for their credential education requirements.
The Berean Digital Collection offers extraordinary advantages that allow each student to learn faster, with deeper knowledge, and greater retention. “It has a navigational tool bar to easily access each chapter, unit and lesson for each course,” said Tony Segar, Director of Logos Bible Software Español. “By placing the curser above any Bible reference, the user can read the Bible passage from his/her favorite translation. Each student also receives immediate test results with direct links to the section of each lesson that has the correct answer.”
According to Dr. Randy Hedlun, Dean of Berean School of the Bible, the Berean Digital Collection is a fantastic tool in Bible training because it allows the student to immediately cross-reference learned concepts, terms and biblical truths.
Another attractive feature of the Berean Digital Collection is that it allows students to interact seamlessly with any Logos base package on Mac or PC, adding the commentaries, dictionaries, lexicons and manuals most frequently recommended in seminary classrooms. The student gets at his/her fingertips a library closely matching leading theological schools’ collections — one, however, much more portable and economical. Now Berean students will a have a powerful library on the go.
