Raising The Power Of Education
To A Golden Opportunity
Dear Prospective Student,
I'm grateful you've taken the time to look at all Aidan University has to offer you in the pursuit of your academic goals. I believe that, if you're preparing to fulfill God's call upon your life, there are few institutions that can offer the non-traditional student such a broad array of tools, teachers and resources to equip them for service to the Body of Christ.
Aidan University is an academic institution of higher learning offering a comprehensive online educational delivery system, traditional resident programs and several cohort-based local options. This methodology allows for the provision of multi-track training for 21st century Christian service that remains committed to the time honored traditions of biblical orthodoxy, yet leverages the leading technology tools order to make relevant application of these eternal principles.
Aidan’s concept of distance education was once considered impractical, but it has now been adopted by leading institutions of higher education as a standard for training in the field of higher education, not only for ministry preparation, but also for other disciplines as well. In many seminary settings, excessive time is inherent in the delivery process of educating the students and much emphasis is placed on repeating information that is common knowledge to most. Today’s learners need the challenge of leading-edge material in the context of a challenging environment to make the material work in the local church and the marketplace.
The leadership, faculty and staff of Aidan are not disconnected either from the pulpit or local church pressures of this modern world. The faculty is involved in local church ministry through special seminars, church consultation, researching of new trends, and with a personal commitment to a local church when not out on the field.
Because we recognize that a sound Christian education is an important part of life, the programs of Aidan are varied and always growing. We currently offer degrees in Biblical Studies, Christian Counseling, Christian Education, Leadership & Organization and Theological Studies.
As a whole, the Aidan experience involves a rich combination of academics, community, and sharing a commitment to one another and the Kingdom of God.
In short, Aidan provides a unique opportunity for students to prepare themselves academically, professionally, and spiritually to serve God in the ministry & professions to which they have been called. As an independent, educational ministry that is thoroughly biblical in its philosophy of education, Aidan is a servant to both the local church and the individual student; providing curriculum, consultation, and direction for the accomplishment of his/her educational goal. We truly are raising the power of education to a golden opportunity!
We invite you to come journey with us.
