Letter from the Dean

Welcome to Global University’s newest school!

I am thrilled that you are pursuing the call God has placed on your life to prepare for Christian service.

There is a need for more and more Christian leaders—women and men who have a foundational preparation for a lifetime of service and learning. Global University’s School for Ministry Development is focused on three essential qualities of a Christian leader:

  1. Wisdom grounded by biblical and theological understanding.
  2. Wholeness shaped by spiritual formation.
  3. Worthiness tested by experience in community.

This school also provides improved access to an affordable program of training for Christian service that culminates in a completed college degree.

The School for Ministry Development is unique among the schools of Global University in that all courses are completed entirely in a web-based environment. All lessons, quizzes, exams, and assignments are facilitated through the university’s learning management system.

At Global University, we see learning as transformation, a growth in thinking and doing that heavily influences your ministry. Regardless of your stage of life and training for service, I am convinced you will be transformed through your learning in the School for Ministry Development.

Enjoy the journey!


David L. De Garmo, DMin

Dean, School for Ministry Development
