We are all about training, equipping, and preparing people of faith for effective ministry. The Online Academy is designed for Pastors, Chaplains, and Lay Ministers of the Evangelical Christian Faith. Our "Online Academy" will add classes over time to provide Continuing Education Credits.

Our classes are taught from within a Christian worldview.
