Among the many changes the pandemic brought into our lives, it pushed us to do a lot from the comfort of our homes. Now the spike in gas prices gives us another incentive to explore and utilize the expanded benefits of online learning.
Missio Seminary has already done a lot of online classes. Recently I was a guest lecturer in an online seminar Rev. Dr. Chad Hinson taught on The Theology of Power. It will be a long time before I stop pondering what I heard from Professor Chad and the students (pastors and prospective pastors) who participated. The discussion was sober and candid about the current widespread abuse of power inside evangelical churches and ministry organizations. But it was also determined and hope-filled because Jesus offers a better way—a redeemed power that blesses and empowers other.
Last evening, I joined an online class taught by Professor Steve Taylor on the Gospel of Mark. There’s so much more to learn! It is incredible to learn from these professors, and frankly, I can’t get enough of this.
This Fall Missio Seminary is launching 4 new Master of Arts in Missional Ministry tracks. Prospective students are invited to 3 open house presentations to learn more about these courses. Feel free to check it out for yourself and forward this information to others you know who might be interested.

I’ve heard a lot of people express a secret longing to go to seminary. Here’s your chance! Now you can fulfill that longing—at home in your pajamas!
Once and a while, I have thought about taking a class remotely but i have always been under the assumption I have to enroll in a degree program and I do not want a degree. I want to take a class, that’s all 🙂 is this still the case?
hi Carolyn… or whoever it might be that responds to this. I have asked this question before but I am not sure I have ever gotten an answer or at least one that i understood. I would love to take advantage of some of the online classes that Missio might offer but I do not want to enroll in a degree program, all I want to do is take a class. I am not sure you let folks audit but I am willing to pay full price and do the work for credit, it’s just that I don’t want it to go towards a degree. Is there any way that I can do this? My understanding in the past is the answer is no because of the new structure of cohorts that Missio has. Is taking a random course here and there possible somehow?
thanks a lot judi
Judi, I thought I responded to this. Yes you can take classes. Contact Wendy Walters (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you haven’t already and she will help you. But yes! definitely take classes you want.
