We Have Low Tuition
Because You

DONATE
Why?...We have one of the lowest tuition costs of any Christian college or university with a high quality, full term, on-line education. We need donations to keep tuition low and to support as many students who want a Christian education without government loan debt as possible. We need donations to offer scholarships to those in need of spreading the gospel in the world in places where they cannot afford such an education. We depend on your donations to our college and ask that you help us to make this dream a reality for aspiring English speaking ministers and Christian workers everywhere in the world. Please donate safely through our PayPal account, using any major credit card, by clicking the 'Donate' button above.
