GLIBU is designed to provide a Global Rang of accredited degree programs in Bible and Ministry for adults who were serious about serving Christ. In fact, it’s our mission, to “educate Ministers and other Christian workers for greater  work in the Kingdom”. Today, of course, non-traditional programs for adults are the fastest growing dynamic in education, with:

  • Emphasis more on analysis and application than rote memorization
  • Opportunities year-round and round-the-clock for busy and interested adults to get a degrees without neglecting their families, church     commitments, or jobs
  • Professors teaching part time while working full time in the  helping professions in the real world

Non-traditional means that the courses are geared primarily to adults who are highly motivated and serious minded to Christian leadership. It means that the campus is both non-residential and Residential, with the vast majority of students driving in from a distance. It means that courses can be taken in centers, online, in churches, or by way of “home studies”. At Center courses can be taken during the day, in the evening, on weekends, in intensive modules, or in an accelerated format. Adults can begin their university education for the very first time, finish a bachelor’s degree they have begun somewhere else, or even enroll in a master’s and Doctorate program.
