Since January, Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, Ind., has been offering distance education programs, where students can earn their degrees through the Internet. Grace Online allows students from around the world to learn without interrupting their lives by moving to Indiana.
With the flexibility of online classes, students do not have to interrupt their busy lives. Current student Christian McAllister, from Canal Winchester, Ohio, is the youth pastor at the Grace Brethren Church in Pataskala, Ohio. As a Grace Online student, he can pursue his education while maintaining his ministry, as well as managing his family of a wife and five kids.
“What [Grace Online] has done is bring seminary into my home,” he says.
