Chesapeake, VA, United States, 2006/11/07 - In its ninth year as the leading online resource for Christian distance learning and online degrees, Baker’s Guide to Christian Distance Education continues to expand.
The Christian Distance Learning Degree and Program Directory just exceeded 475 entries with the addition of a Master of Arts in Pastoral Leadership listing.
According to Jason D. Baker, Ph.D., author of the Baker’s Guide to Christian Distance Education website, interest in Christian online learning continues to grow. “I receive regular emails from pastors, missionaries, teachers, and others who want quality theological education but are not able or willing to relocate to a college or seminary campus. Distance education enables them to study for a degree without uprooting.”
The Christian Distance Learning Degree and Program Directory features over 475 online schools, colleges, universities, seminaries, and degrees listed ranging from virtual K-12 schools through accredited bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees, plus a growing number of theology degree programs offered by international universities. The site combines advice from an experienced distance learner and educator and directory information of available Christian distance and online program to help students take the plunge into Christian distance learning.
“There are more educational options for the Christian than ever before,” notes Baker.
