Global University, an accredited distance education university of the Assemblies of God, has announced it is partnering with the Assemblies of God Credit Union (AGCU) to assist students with financial options.
AGCU has set up an easy application process for a ministry loan up to $3,000 with a term up to 60 months. The loan is subject to credit approval. Students can download and find out details about the loan by visiting Global University's Web site, clicking on the students tab in the navigation bar and then clicking on the financial aid link.
According to Mark Perry, chief financial officer for Global University, this service was created to offer a financial help option to students. "We are committed not only to continue being affordable but also remain accessible to our students. I believe this ministry loan will help our students to have the access to the ministerial training they need without going into extreme debt," he says.
Now Global University students will have the option to pursue financial help for their ministerial education at any of their educational levels. For Berean School of the Bible students, this loan should pay the entire cost for all three levels at the Ministerial Studies program. The ministry loan can also provide much needed help to those students pursuing undergraduate degrees with the Undergraduate School of Bible and Theology and graduate degrees with the Graduate School of Theology.
"The Assemblies of God Credit Union is excited to partner with Global University to enable more students to pursue ministerial degrees," says Paul Ebisch, AGCU president. "We want to be a part of helping keep cost down and remove barriers to ministry candidates getting the education they need to fulfill what God has called them to do."
