You Are Looking for Evening or Online Classes

Traditional daytime classes don’t work for every learner’s schedule. If you are an active church leader or have another job, then your days are likely full of activities and responsibilities. Luckily, GCU’s EdD in Christian ministry program is available online or for evening classes. Going to class in the evening is a great idea if your days are already full. Online classes can also be a great choice for learners who prefer greater flexibility.
