Mission & Description:

Institution Mission Statement:

Global University is a Christian university in the Pentecostal tradition that:

  • integrates education and service through a worldwide network for student support
  • provides access to ministerial training from adult continuing education to the graduate level
  • produces curricular materials in multiple languages
  • serves the local church and Christian community through evangelism, discipleship, and leadership training through nonresidential distributed learning methods

Areas of Special Focus:

Training Pastors, Church leaders, and workers to better fulfill their calling, for service in and through local churches.

Description of Institution:

Global University has a combined history of more than 80 years of service, yet is on the cutting edge of technology with on-line courses. However, print courses remain a mainstay for those who prefer to study in print or do not have internet access. The goal is to make evangelism, discipleship, and training accessible to everyone-everywhere!
