  2. Formulate theological beliefs based upon biblical and historical perspectives
  3. Demonstrate basic leadership skills in Christian ministry.
  4. Demonstrate a Great Commission perspective in evangelism, discipleship, ministry, and worship.

Online Option

You can now complete the Associate of Divinity degree using one of three different formats: on-campus, online, or a blended format. Spurgeon College provides a Christian environment in which to study and learn. Our smaller size allows you to have more personal contact with your professors. Our new online program allows you the convenience of study on your schedule and in your home or office. The blended format provides the advantages of both. Many of the online courses offered in the Associate of Divinity degree plan meet the requirements of several degree plans offered through Spurgeon College; however, before registering for a course, be sure it meets the requirements for your specific degree plan.
