Anyone who wants to fulfill the call of God on their life needs preparation to do so. With God’s Word as the foundation for ministry—whether in the home, in the church, in the marketplace or on the mission field—online theological instruction can help believers prepare for what God has in their future.
Dr. Michael Bommarito, director of MyTrinity Online and associate professor, biblical and theological studies, shared on the Charisma Connection podcast how online education serves these needs, especially while navigating the coronavirus pandemic.
“Even before the COVID situation, online education has definitely become more prevalent and more popular and increasingly so as it makes higher education more affordable,” Bommarito says. “It makes it more accessible to the average individual.”
Dr. Bommarito discusses two new programs on the podcast, one for those who want to return to school and complete their bachelor’s degree and the other for graduate students. The first program he mentions is for any individual whose education was interrupted for some reason.
“Life happens. Maybe they didn’t excel enough, maybe college wasn’t for them and they walked away, they started getting involved in their life and career, and now they’re wanting to go back and finish it,” he says.
Returning to the classroom can be intimidating, so My Trinity Online can “come alongside them to offer them the support that’s necessary to make that transition back into education, to make that transition into online learning, because we’re talking older than average,” Bommarito says. “We’re talking individuals who didn’t grow up with an iPhone in their hand, so they’re maybe not as comfortable on online platforms.”
These students may receive credit not only for classroom learning but also for their life experience.
