A short video about the benefits of studying at GCS
Worship: to love God with all your mind.
Service: to help others apply truth to life.
Practical: a balanced range of useful topics for ministry.
Trinitarian theology: a survey of theology and the merits of a Trinitarian perspective. We begin with the question, "Who is God?" Then, "Who are we in relationship to God?" In this context, "How then do we serve?"
Part-time study: designed to help people who are already serving in local congregations. There is no need to leave your current ministry. Full-time students are also welcome.
Flexibility: your choice of master's level courses or pursuit of a degree.
Affordable, accredited study: Everything can be done online.
