Accreditation Notes: 
In June 2019, the Board of Commissioners approved an exception to residency requirements, thereby allowing the school to offer all of its professional degrees (MDiv, MA in Christian Leadership, MA in Counseling, and DMin) through a combination of online delivery and competency-based education that is credit-/course-based. In January 2020 the ATS Board of Commissioners approved a two-year experiment to offer the ThD degree through a combination of intensive courses on campus and faculty-directed individual instruction, with a final decision on the degreeĀ’s ongoing status to be made in June 2022.
