Accreditation Notes: 
In February 2018, the Board approved a four-year experiment, thereby allowing the school to offer its ThD degree through a combination of intensive courses on campus and faculty-directed individual instruction. In June 2018, the Board of Commissioners approved an exception to residency requirements, thereby allowing the school to offer the MDiv and MA in Ministry degree programs completely online. In January 2020, the Board of Commissioners voted to approve the school's request for a change in ownership and governing control, resulting in withdrawal from accredited membership in the ATS Commission on Accrediting, effective June 30, 2022.
