Summer Trimester—Modular Courses
The courses offered during the summer trimester at the OGTC are specifically designed to allow for high-impact mentoring. Missionaries and the staff at the OGTC teach one-week long courses including but not limited to Child Evangelism, Muslim Evangelism, and Building Disciples. The courses taught are largely practical courses with emphasis on immediate application. Actual ministry and practice is an expected component of each modular class. With relatively small class sizes, the practical training received through these modular courses is second to none.
Correspondence Course Credit
College credit for correspondence courses is granted provided that the course meets the requirements and standards of the Our Generation Training Center as determined by the school.
