Assemblies of God Theological Seminary President Byron Klaus and Central Bible College President Gary Denbow arrived at the same conclusion last fall - their schools needed to work more closely together in order to streamline the process of educating and preparing ministers and missionaries for the field.
In a statement recently released by both schools, they are now working together to "Create a seamless educational pathway for AG ministerial preparation through innovation and restructuring of our two educational institutions for greater effectiveness."
Although General Council leadership is being provided with regular reports on this effort, AGTS and CBC initiated and are heading up the process. It will be the Board of Directors Task Force, a joint committee from the two schools, who will ultimately be making the final recommendations, while the Board of Directors of each institution will be responsible for implementing the approved plan.
In addition, some of the hoped for results of the process are to create a more affordable education for students, as well as provide significant cost savings for both institutions.
