PARTNERSHIP WITH BLUEFIELD COLLEGE
The Christian Leaders Link has enter into a new partnership agreement with Bluefield College that will offer a degree-completion program to prospective undergraduate students. The program will allow students to complete 48 credit hours of ministry training over a two-year period. When finished, the student can transfer all the credits to Bluefield (or another school of their choice) to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry Studies. Or, students can opt to simply receive a certificate indicating they have completed the 48 hours.
Students in the program will meet in-class once/week for 3 hours. The remainder of the class requirements will be completed online. We will offer the program, initially, in Roanoke beginning with the fall 2013 semester. If response is strong enough, we will offer the program at an additional 1-2 sites in future semesters.
This would be an ideal program for a student who wants to get started in their preparation for ministry. It could also work well for those who would be bivocational ministers.
Because students will be taking 12 credits hours/semester, they will be considered full-time students. That makes them eligible to receive military aid or scholarships through V-Tag. Students will also be able to apply for ministry scholarships through the BGAV.
