Online Seminary Education
If you're already in a ministry setting or can't yet move to one of our locations, online seminary courses provide a great way to receive a thorough theological education from seasoned, godly professors and start forming relationships with other students. You can complete our entire CBTS and MA(BS) degrees online or begin a hybrid program that combines online classes with week-long trips to one of our eight locations.
